Piet Mondrain was our artist of the month. I gave a brief overview of his history, such as he started out painting similar to the Impressionists and Noe-Impressionsists before he started to venture into a complete form of abstract art. Plus, I added how he even stopped using the color green all together! For this project I focused on the painting "Composition with Re, Yellow and Blue," but I displayed pictures of his various paintings, especially his abstract ones.
HOW TO MAKE IT
- White construction paper
- crayons - black, yellow, red, blue
HOW DID IT GO?
This went very well. Some of the children kept to the program and made the two pictures (one strict Mondrian style and one animal). Others decided to work on their color theory and create the color green and brown by mixing their crayon colors.
This was a very successful program.
