Click on the images at the bottom of this post to enlarge. In our ART HISTORY unit, 4th grade focuses on Wassily Kandinsky and his abstract art. Each student in Mr. Hellberg's class created their own SQUARE with CONCENTRIC circles and they were displayed together as one collaborative piece! Students used kwik stix and neon oil pastels to complete this project. Enjoy!
Mrs. Martin's 4th grade finished their collaborative project last week. The piece is based on Wassily Kandinsky's Squares with Concentric Circles. Each student created their own square on the piece, 12" x 12" using oil pastels. The overall look is striking and brightens up our hallway at North Central Elementary. Next week they will start their second project on the famous artist. This project, however, will be individual.
Students at the elementary are currently creating projects based on famous artists from the past!
Young 4's & Kindergarten - Pablo Picasso
1st - Vincent Van Gogh
2nd - Andy Warhol
3rd - Henri Matisse
4th - Wassily Kandinsky
5th - Leonardo Da Vinci
6th - Salvador Dali
Check back for updates on their completed projects.
A sneak peek is pictured below!
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!
