JOAN MIRO INSPIRED PIECES

Marion Denchars writes, "much of Joan Miro's work ... looks very childlike, with bright colors and thick black outlines." His artwork is perfect for five and six-year-olds! For this post, we made masterpieces inspired by Joan Miro. Check it out.

I can't take all the credit for these creations. I borrowed it from Marion Denchars book, Draw Paint Print like the Great Artists. I recommended purchasing it because it has many great ideas and the end results look fabulous.

MATERIALS | white paper, pencil, a black Sharpie, and markers (or crayons or colored pencils)

DIRECTIONS | 1. Place the white paper in front of you. Give yourself plenty of space to move. 2. Close your eyes. Using the pencil, draw quickly across your paper using a combination of straight lines and squiggly ones. 3. Trace the lines with a Sharpie. 

Finally, color in the random shapes in bright colors. 

TADA! A beautiful masterpiece created by a Great Artist, YOU!
