First graders have started their final painting project, inspired by the Russian artist Vasily Kandinsky. For this painting, we took inspiration from Kandinsky’s color study: Concentric Circles.
Students looked at the painting, noticing the shapes, and colors Kandinsky used. First graders in room 4 thought it would be interesting to create their own work, using different geometric shapes, instead of circles. I hadn’t even thought of that idea, so I happily shared it with room 3 when they started their painting.
