Students learned how to draw their own Miro shapes and compose them into an abstract figure. We discussed the attributes of Joan Miro’s work, and how he used abstract shapes and line to communicate his ideas about the human figure. We first drew our figure in pencil and sharpie, then used tempera and acrylic paint to finish our work. We were pleasantly surprised at how much alike our paintings are aligned with the aesthetic of an incredible master artist!
