Day 2: Kandinsky

When the talented folks at Guelph School of Art presented their class outline to us, they ensured art history was one of the key learning components. Each class would first learn about one of the masters, and their techniques would then be applied as the students created their very own masterpiece.

Wassily Kandinsky is considered by many to be the founder of the abstract art movement, and his love of shape, colour and repetition is evident in 'Colour Studies: Squares and Concentric Circles'. What a perfect project for a kindergarten class! Here you can see a photo of my little guy, Ben, working away on his painting while Kaili Elmhurst illustrates Kandinsky's technique to the students at Victory Public School.
