.: Master Artist Introduction :.
Piet Mondrian (MON-dree-ahn)
Mondrian's geometric, abstract art illustrated the balance of shapes and colors in modern art. After being introduced to the work of this master artist from Holland, the children imitated his expressive arrangements of colors, lines, and shapes.
Art Activity Emphasis: Balance of Shapes, lines, and colors
.: Art Supplies :.
Twelve 1/2"x12" strips paper (2 blue, 2 red, 8 yellow)
One 12"x12" sheet of light gray paper (we used cream)
One piece of scrap paper (for dab of glue)
Note: The program suggested construction paper but we used card stock since I already had plenty on hand. We didn't follow the instructions exactly - I need to start reading them ahead of time, and preferably not in the middle of (at that point unknowingly) fighting H1N1! ;) - but I thought the final results still turned out great.
