Happy Birthday, Wassily Kandinsky!

 It took two class periods but our Kandinsky pieces are complete.  Our first class the children covered the canvas with colors of their choice.  We encouraged them to place colors 'next to' each other and not on top of each other. 
We love it when the children request more paint for their palette!  We have introduced lots and lots of vocabulary during this unit! 

Here are some of the finished pieces after day one.





On Monday, we looked at Kandinsky's work and talked about straight and curvy lines, dots and circles.  We gave each child black paint.  On the tables, the children were able to choose between brushes, Q-tips and marker lids for circles.






We watched some cool jazz!

Mr. Kandinsky would be 149 years old today.  Happy Birthday, Kandinsky!
