Joan Miro: Off the Wall!

"Escargot, femme, fleur, et etoile", Joan Miro 1934

Automatism…that’s the fancy word for letting go and letting it be…whether the art is rooted in a mark, a feeling, or a dream.  It is a letting-go.  Inspired by one of Miro’s pieces, the grade eight and nine students fell into a rhythm of invention. Joan Miro was yet another artist who was so engaged with the heart of his soul that he struggled.  Yet, his work is laden with a sense of celebration and childlike creation. 

One Wall



I love words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them. — Anne Rice
