Watercolor Miro Designs


After learning about Joan Miro and viewing some of his works, first and second graders created these fun watercolor designs imitating his style.   Students created (or traced from a handout) Miro type designs on a large coffee filter with black sharpies. Second step was to paint over these designs with watercolors (no brown or black).  After drying, these designs were gently glued onto a paper plate with glue sticks.   Black sharpies were used to color the edge of the plate to provide a “frame”.   This was quick and fun, a project where everyone succeeds!
