The ELEMENTS OF ART / Artist: Mondrian / Line and Color
Students were introduced to the "Composition" work of Dutch Artist, Piet Mondrian, of the "De Stijl" movement: This style, also known as "neo-plasticism" is defined by perpendicular horizontal and vertical black lines, and primary colors blue, red, and yellow (in addition to black and white).
• K-2 used crayons to create their "Composition" of primary colors and black.
• 3-8 used colored papers to create their thoughtful creation of balance using black, white and primary colors: Red, Yellow Blue, understanding negative space(s) and their role in "Composition".
All students watched our interactive "Composition Creator" and some tried it out via ChromeCast. Perhaps visit the link with them and they can share their experience in creating their own "Composition".
I will post some photos soon, of some of the creations.
