Kindergarten Kandinskys

Artwork by Annaleigh B.
Kinders have been investigating Wassily Kandinsky's famous Squares with Concentric Circles and trying their own hand at combining various colors in the same visual format.  This is a great lesson to not only familiarize the students with a famous work of abstract art, but also to build their confidence with watercolors, challenge their fine motor skills, and allow them to experience firsthand what happens as colors combine and how certain color combinations have more "oomph" than others.  When all of the classes have completed this painting, I'll display a number of them together as one giant, colorful work of art!
