Art Masters: Kandinsky's Garden
This art resource introduces students to the works of Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky - the father of abstraction. It has links to art elements of line, shape and colour. The samples in this resource are from students aged between 4 and 7 so the focus skills are fine-motor and we explored cutting, sorting, gluing and using stencils, painting smoothly, mixing colours, wet scratching and composition. Your students can produce a class mural and individual works as well. Also included as a bonus, a bulletin board display resource about the artist in the style of a facebook profile, including posts, images, video links and an autobiography. You can read more about this unit on my blog (link above) by using the search term 'Wassily Kandinsky - Father of abstraction' http://timeawillemse.blogspot.co.nz
Examples in this unit were made by Y1 students.
