Abstract color in the dark of winter.

5th graders looked at the abstract watercolor paintings of Vasily Kandinsky as inspiration for this work.  They used shapes and lines to divide up the page, then filled the spaces with color using various watercolor painting techniques.  Emotion and music also factored into these pieces as we explored how tone and mood can be expressed with only shape, color and line.  What do you think these artists thinking as they painted?
