1st Grade – Kandinsky Abstracts

1st Grade – Kandinsky Abstracts

I LOVE teaching this lesson! Β But actually, the next several photos are my student teacher, Sara Andrews’, fantastic results teaching it! I like to start with discussing Wassily Kandinsky’s simple shapes and simple lines… how he organizes them and the fact that he like to paint how music sounded to him. Β Students love to discuss his work and imagine what sounds could look like!

We discuss warm colors and cool colors, balancing the two on their paper… while listening to music. Β This should hopefully look like the music they listened to at the end!

Day 2 – Β We fill in all the little white spaces with some oil pastel if students did not get them all filled.

After that, we discuss printing. Β I demonstrate using cardboard, sponges on a stick and cotton swabs to print with. Β DONE! A simple two week project with beautiful results!
