1st Grade: Kandinsky Compositions!

24 Nov

In Mrs. Johnson’s Art Room, 1st Graders viewed and discussed the abstract artwork of Russian artist, Wassily Kandinsky.

The Russian painter, Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944)

Students identified lines, shapes, and colors found in Kandinsky’s artworks. Here are some examples of artworks we viewed:

Kandinsky, "Improvisation 7" (www.abcgallery.com/K/kandinsky/kandinsky64.html)

Kandinsky, "Small Pleasures" (www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/auth/kandinsky/pleasures)

Brainstorm: Can you identify some of the lines you see in these artworks? What does this artwork remind you of?

Then, using different types of thick and thin lines and blended colors, students created their own Kandinsky-inspired compositions! Here are some examples of student work:
