Kandinsky-Inspired Art

I like doing projects that are similar styles to famous paintings or famous artists. Even if we don’t end up actually talking about the original artwork, it’s still a fun change from what we normally do and a good experience.

I’d found this shape collage idea that was in the style of Wassily Kandinsky, and it seemed like a fun idea. It also inspired me to look up some of his other artwork, and some of those images gave me another idea for a project. So, these are the two projects we did based on this artist.

1. Shape Collage: I cut out various shapes and lines in different colors and let the boys glue them how they wanted on a colorful sheet of paper.

2. Square and Circle gluing: With colorful squares and circles, Love Bug did this gluing project.

We took a long sheet of white paper, glued down squares, glued smaller circles on top, and then glued even smaller circles on top of those.
