Kandinsky and 2D Shapes

Now that we are in Summer mode we are still working on some “learning things”, but at a much slower and more creatively driven pace. We did a Kandinsky art study about six years ago (it didn’t seem that long ago, but it’s true I looked it up), and it was one of the boys’ favorites. I found a Kandinsky project on Momfessionals and decided it would be fun to revisit the artist with a new project. We watched several of the videos Andrea references in her post, and then completed our project while listening to different classical music songs on Spotify.

We also watched several Khan Academy videos on 2D shapes while we worked, and we went through story time readings of Michael Hall books (The Perfect Square, My Heart is Like a Zoo), and books about crayons (The Day the Crayons Quit, Red by Michael Hall, The Day the Crayons Came Home).

The boys decided to do different shapes other than circles which were really fun:


We kept the crafting going by making Hey Clay snails with cool spiraled shells that are reminiscent of Kandinsky’s circles:


We had such a fun time revisiting art study, I’m already working on some other projects for the upcoming weeks!
