Zilker School-wide Student Art Show

1st Grade Joan Miro Paintings

What did we do? First we looked at several of Joan Miro’s artworks and talked about how he used symbols in his paintings. Then we practiced drawing some of Miro’s symbols, and created some of our own symbols. We chose up to eight symbols to use in our own paintings.

What did we learn? We learned about surrealist art and how Miro got ideas for his art from his dreams. We learned how symbols can represent different ideas. We also learned about the primary and secondary colors, as well as how to show texture with paint.
