2nd Grade students completed (for the most part) their oil pastel creations today. The artwork featured at the left is by a famous artist called Kandinsky. (Click on the image to be linked to an additional info page)
We used his concentric circles composition as a change to create art, but also to use our Color Theory knowledge with our design.
In the 2nd graders pieces, each set of circles should be using a specific color combination. For example, warm, cool, neutrals, complementary or secondary. I have this lesson planned for all of the lower elementary students. When complete, all of the art will be combined together to create one very large collaborative piece!
