Kindergarten – Joan Miro

Students looked at artwork by artist Joan Miro. We discussed the lines in her artwork and how each of her bold lines and shapes were created by lines we know and use in class (straight, bumpy, zig zag, dashed, dotted, etc). We also talked about the primary colors (red, yellow, blue) and shapes that we saw and could recreate (squares, rectangles, and triangles). I showed the students how easily they could create those simple shapes from a square.

Here is some of the artwork we looked at:
