Miro Squiggle Drawings-- 1st Grade
Juan Miro is one of my favorite artists. I used artwork by Miro to help the kids learn the difference between abstract and realistic art. The kids analyzed his artwork and we categorized prints. Then, they drew a squiggly line with their eyes closed. Then they turned their paper around to view it from many angles. The kids tried to find different things in their picture.. faces, hands, animals, etc. They could add details to their drawing. Some added words. Then, they colored these in with markers or crayons.
