(KG) The Kandinsky Project/ Emphasis on the colors ( Part I)

Kindergarten students studied the work of Wassily Kandinsky.
Wassily Kandinsky was one of the greatest pioneers of abstract art. 
We looked at his work and we discussed how to him, art was a means of expression
in which what one actually sees and what one feels are blended. In this first phase of the Kandinsky project, students studied the use of his colors and created colorful compositions.

Students used pencils to draw their design.
They used a variety of water colors to complete their compositions.

  11. fantastic work on color, with your students, it is important to know how to communicate their emotions to color.

  12. Good Morning!... Glad to have discovered your site!

    As an art educator and advocate for the Arts for children (in a previous life)... it gave me great pleasure to view children... obviously at work... discovering and understanding the principles underlying Kandinsky's visual power and genius!

    Paradoxically.. I believe that Kandinsky also rediscovered... understood and valued the strength... simplicity and pure honesty of "children's" Art! Simple beauty... without all of the rules!

    Great work! I'll be back!
    Warmest regards,
