The trees speak to me

Barcelona World Sustainable Food Capital 2021

“When I see a tree, like a carob tree for example, I feel like it is speaking to me. It has eyes. You can talk to it”. Joan Miró

Joan Miró walked through the gardens of Mont-roig del Camp looking at the fruit and vegetables the farmers were growing, and later painted his landscapes. In this project we discover crops and their production to work on the importance of food security and sovereignty for our diet.

Artichokes here, potatoes there!

Barcelona World Sustainable Food Capital 2021

“I think of my studio like a garden. Artichokes here, potatoes there . . . For the fruit to grow, you have to cut the leaves, at some point you have to prune." Joan Miró

Joan Miró walked through the gardens of Mont-roig del Camp looking at the fruit and vegetables the farmers were growing, and later painted his landscapes. In this project we discover gardens and their production, as well as their importance for our sustenance. Miró’s artistic processes will be tools for learning and experimentation as we encourage student creativity.
