Art classes at the studio: Learning from the masters, Joan Miró

This week, students finished a project on Joan Miró


After looking at photographs of Joan Miró's artwork, students age 6 to 10 were asked to draw "people" in the same style.





















Students age 11 to 13 made a drawing (which had to include a focal point) in the style of the artist.
