3rd Grade - Joan Miro Abstract Freeform Shape Designs

Some of my favorite Joan Miro paintings are the ones with many shapes overlapping and creating new shapes.  We looked at several of his works of art that created some interesting shapes from layering.  To create our compositions, we drew two very large, loopy freeform shapes, with the goal to create other shapes. This lesson is a great transition between two larger lessons that take a few meeting times.  This one only takes 2 class times and is very productive!  Enjoy!

  1. What did you tell the kids to do for this? Did you have them paint on paper bags?
