My Miro!

Portrait of Joan Miro by Yousuf Karsh

Portrait of Joan Miro by Yousuf Karsh

Joan Miro was a Spanish Surrealist painter who created colorful and abstract paintings with shapes, colors and lines. His paintings were fun and funny! They sometimes showed oddly shaped animals or people. The ideas for his paintings often came from his dreams or from simple things he saw around him like a bug on the wall or a spec of dust. He loved to use red, yellow, blue, green and black in his art.

Google Joan Miro to see many examples of his work. You don’t have to travel far to see a real Miro piece of art. The Minneapolis Institute of Art has several.

 

My Miro


Project #1-  The Art of Shapes

Materials:

  • Paints, markers or colored pencils in red, yellow, blue, green and black.
  • Large sheets of white paper

Directions:

  • Draw or paint 3 shapes on a piece of paper.  You can use squares, circles, moons, stars or any shape your imagination can dream up!
  • Next, connect the shapes with lines. Straight lines, squiggly lines, zig-zag lines, what ever you like.
  • Add some smaller shapes to fill in the spaces left on the paper.
  • Color in some of the shapes.
  • You have created your very own Miro!

 

Project #2-  Feel It!

Materials:

  • Paints, markers or colored pencils in red, yellow, blue, green and black.
  • Large sheets of white paper
  • Paper bags
  • Interestingly shaped objects  (You will need to have a friend or family member help you with this! Have them pick out objects and put them into individual bags. Don’t look in the bags- it needs to be a surprise!)

Directions:

  • Put your hand into a bag with a mystery object.  What shapes do you feel?  Using shapes and lines draw what you feel!
