Children's Art: Homage to Joan Miró

A few weeks ago The children and I visited an excellent exhibition showing the fascinating work of the spanish artist Joan Miró.
The children were enchanted by the simplicity and clearness of Miró's colors and symbols.

Yesterday I asked them to draw pictures, trying to remember what they liked best about Miró's work. They were allowed to use my rather precious Senelier oil pastels...I figured out, by giving them of my material from time to time, they feel kind of honored and take their own art work more serious and important ;-)

While drawing we figured out, what the remember best is a series of illustrations Miró's made for "The Canticle of the Sun" by Saint Francis of Assisi.
