Spanish Sculptures

As part of creative week Year 5 pupils have worked with a variety of materials to produce a collage sculpture, inspired by the work of artist Joan Miro. The children began by making simple collages inspired by some of the elements in Miro’s paintings. Joan Miro used automatic drawing in his work. We explained to the children that we were going to make an automatic drawing over our collages, to add another layer of meaning to the work. They were then challenged to make sculptures, inspired by Miro, and inspired also by their own experiences of making the collage and using automatic drawing.
