Kandinsky Paintings

Kindergarten learned about Kandinsky as part of our "Line and Shape" unit. I pre-folded the paper into 8 sections, and students traced the folds in the paper with a yellow oil pastel. Students then drew a large circle in each section, then medium, then small. After that, they used tempera paint to color!

Artist: Wassily Kandinsky
Elements: Shape
Concepts: Size
Materials: White tag board, yellow oil pastel, tempera paint
