Kinder Piet Mondrian Prints
Kinder art students have started studying the Element of Design of COLOR! We looked at Dutch artist Piet Mondrian and discussed how he used the three Primary Colors: red, blue, and yellow, as his main colors, and then added black and white to his compositions. We also identified some basic shapes in his artworks: squares and rectangles, as well as straight lines. We started with different sizes of red, blue, and yellow squares and rectangles, and tried to arrange them on our white papers in a satisfying way. Once we had our shapes arranged, we glued them down. The next art day, we added straight black lines using a stamp print method. These photos show students using a piece of cardboard and black paint to stamp their straight black lines in between the rectangles and squares.
