Joan Miro was a Spanish artist who used shape, line and color to create abstract paintings.  Students discussed his painting Boy and Dog in the Sun.  The painting inspired us to create alien drawings using a variety of space, line and color.  Student artists drew their aliens using crayons and textured rubbing plates.  Third and fourth graders are looking forward to Space Week in May and this project helped jump start their interest.
