The Art of Miro

First graders just learned about artist, Joan Miro. We began by looking at various drawings and paintings and tried to identify meaning behind his abstract images. Each painting told a unique story and the first graders were very creative as they tried to uncover that story! Then we looked at symbols Miro commonly used and created our own works of art inspired by those symbols.

Kindergartners learned about the art of Jim Dine in art class and used plasticine clay to "paint" their hearts!
