Inspired by Miroco Machiko

Thank you to Mrs. Knight's Smartest Artists for the introduction to Miroco Machiko.  I love her bold, stylized artwork.  The students can really relate to her sense of design and colorful images.  We looked at her picture of vegetables, then used crayon and watercolor resist to create fruit and vegetable pictures.

Here is artwork inspired by Miroco Machiko by first and second graders. This is the piece of artwork that artists in grades one and two will use for their Original Works fundraiser.  


  1. Very effective! Did you have pieces (or pictures) of fruit for inspiration, or are they from memory?

  2. Next time I will definitely have examples of fruit and veggies for kids to look at. Great idea!
