In art class Kindergarteners made paintings inspired by the artists Piet Mondrian and Wassily Kandinsky, both were artists during the same art period. Students compared their art and noticed how they used lines and colors differently. Mondrian made paintings using vertical and horizontal lines to create squares and rectangles. Mondrian used only the 3 primary colors, which they learned are red, blue and yellow. Students learned how to use a ruler to carefully draw straight horizontal and vertical lines and then learned careful painting techniques. For their Kandinsky paintings students learned about and painted many different types of lines. After first painting with the 3 primary colors they explored color mixing and created the secondary colors, orange, violet and green. At the end they added some glitter paint to make them shine.
Beautiful Art Kinders!
