Barb has created Summer Art plans for Sketch Tuesday covering several famous artists.
She explains on Harmony Fine Arts,
“Each week I will be posting a sketch idea based on a great piece of artwork from a famous artist. I will give you a link to look at the painting online, a link to a biography or video, and a simple idea for your family to complete and then send in for the art show.”
We joined this week’s artist ~
Create your own Miro inspired artwork by either copying the painting in this week’s lesson
Figures and dog in front of the sun – Wikiart
or using the Roll a Miro activity in this pin on Pinterest: Roll a Miro
We both enjoyed the Roll-a-Miro dice fun! Our outlines were completely unplanned and spontaneous. But, when Lara completed coloring her picture, she came to my table quite unimpressed,
“It looks a 3-year-old did this, mom.”
When I completed my coloring in, I must admit that also felt a disappointment in how it looked. Well, at least the art process was fun! And sometimes the end-product is nothing like we expect.
Well, I think sometimes surrealistic, abstract, or modern art is like that. I remember similar thoughts when I stood looking at original Picasso drawings hanging in a famous art museum! How childish! How can this be real art?
“Be silent, you inner critic!”
