The kids of 5th grade are doing a project about Joan Miró and his paintings. I will show the pictures when they finish but first, let's know a little more about this famous painter and how we are working in class.
1. Give each student a piece of watercolor paper and pencil. They are to draw one large stick figure in the middle, preferably in some action pose. Miro often repeated shapes in his work so ask the students to add more shapes to their art but ONLY by using lines and dots. At least two of the shapes need to intersect (overlap) to make more shapes to color.
2. After the pencil drawing is done, the students need to trace it heavily with a black crayon.
