Springtime is a time of new life!  Grass is turning green again and trees and flowers are budding.  Many animals lay eggs beginning in the spring.

Spanish artist Joan Miro created many paintings that were abstract, or didn’t look like real life.  Some of his paintings were non-objective, meaning they didn’t have any object that we can recognize.  These paintings were made up of lines, shapes and colors. 

After looking at the examples by Miro, create your own Miro styled egg.  Start by drawing a huge oval, filling up almost the whole page. Fill the inside of the egg with lines, shapes and colors inspired by Miro.  Use any materials you have around the house.  I would love see your work; you can email it to me at goeckea@dearbornschools.org
