Joan Miro Portrait Art Game
You will design a Joan Miro inspired portrait by rolling the die and collecting the different patterns required to create it.
First, roll the die to select a head shape from the first column and draw it. Then, roll the die again to determine which face you’ll draw on the head. Next, roll for a torso and draw it below the head. Then roll to determine which pair of arms you’ll add to your design. Lastly, roll the die one more time to select legs. You can overlap the arms and legs onto the torso or let them touch the edge. It’s up to you!
To make your portrait unique, add some fun lines, shapes, stars, and moons in the background. Then, using crayons or oil pastels, smudge some colors in the background. To complete your design, use watercolor or tempera paints to fill it in, outlining everything in black.
First, print out the game and picture directions back-to-back. Then give them dice and watch them have fun creating their own art project independently. Once completed, have students use the self-assessment rubrics to evaluate their artwork based on craftsmanship, creativity, following directions, work habits, project goals, and clean up. And then have them complete the “Big Ideas” sheet so they can connect the creation process to their learning.
