ABSTRACTION!!!

Fifth graders have finished a painting based on the colorful abstract work of Russian-American artist Wassily Kandinsky.  After an initial drawing using geometric and abstract shapes as well as lines students went in with watercolor paint. They needed to use at least 5 of the 9 painting techniques we studied and be as careful as possible with their brushes. While very little of art is truly “color within the lines”, this is one example where neatness counts. The results are beautiful blasts of color as we head into the darkest weeks of the year. Enjoy.
