This week I introduced Piet Mondrian who is famous for this style of art.
The students brought in canvases so we could reproduce this art. First they drew out their grid, which gave them a good lesson on horizontal, vertical and parallel lines. Then they needed to randomly paint their squares and rectangles. Once dry they needed to put in their black lines using electrical tape. Some are still working on that step.
This week while we collected everyone's canvases we did a fun project. This project involved paint and straws and lots of hot air! They needed to drip their paint and blow it where they wanted their tree to go.
