Miro Art Lesson: Children paint basic lines and shapes with a small tip brush and black tempera paint. Detail lines later. No pencils. Then, using a tray of dry tempera cakes children painted inside all the shapes. We talked about white space, whether or not to paint a background and the saturation of Miro’s color palette. Once the paint colors were applied, children went back over any black lines that disappeared under the colored paint.


What color to paint the sun? What color to paint the moon? Could be part of a lesson in warm/cool colors...
