Enter the world of the surreal to and let children’s imaginations run wild

Spanish painter and sculptor, Joan Miró (1893-1983), is well known for his surrealist and abstract works. Here we use one of his pieces, The Nightingale’s Song at Midnight and the Morning Rain, as a starting point for children’s thinking, discussion and artwork. Children have the opportunity to use clay to create a simple tile. They draw their designs onto the surface of the clay and paint the tile when it is dry. If you have access to a kiln, the clay can of course be fired and glazed.
