Primary Colors and Mondrian

Kinder art students are studying the element of color in art class.  We started by looking at the artist Piet Mondrian, and watched this fun video that shows many of the Dutch artist's artworks:


Students then chose different sizes of rectangles and squares in the primary colors: red, yellow, and blue.  Students arranged and glued the shapes to their white papers. The only thing missing were the black lines!  Instead of drawing or painting the lines on, students printed them with pieces of cardboard and thick tempera paint. A new and fun way to add lines!

Check out the finished artwork here on Artsonia, our online student art museum!
