Draw with ... Joan Miro
by Ana Salvador
Age Range: 9-11
The ‘Draw with …’ series from France are an excellent way of introducing children to the work of the work of Spanish artist Jean Miro. Step-by-step French author Ana Salvador shows how to recreate some of Miro’s most famous images.
From splashes of colour, shapes, birds, constellations, sky and figures there are so many images to choose from. Interspersed amongst the pictures are quotations from the artist and at the front of the book there is a double-page spread with information about the artist, his life and work.
Children can have fun copying each of the images which will help them to appreciate Miro’s shapes and colour and inspire them to improvise and to try out many more of their own.
