Hands on problem solving and balanced compositions will be discussed in class.

Joan Miro and the Triptych Sculpture in Google Classroom

Joan Miro and the Triptych Sculpture

Begin checking out Miro's paintings and understanding his interest in a limited palette for his colors. 
Read a bit of his biography to have some respect for the time and place of his upbringing and also his visual art choices, his aesthetic. 

We will talk about this more in class and give parameters for the tryptic art sculpture that we will be making in mixed media ( clay, found object and plaster) 

YOUR HOMEWORK is to find an object to use in your tryptic...it should be about the size of your fist. It can be a container or a piece of hardware or a part of something....
