1st Grade Artwork Inspired by the Paintings of Piet Mondrian

Right:Composition with Red, Blue and Yellow by Piet Mondrian
Left: Sample Student Artwork

The Art-making Process
-The firsts graders began by intersecting and gluing horizontal and vertical lines to make a collage.

-Students were allowed to choose primary colors (red, blue, and yellow) or secondary colors (orange, purple, and green), along with black, white and gray, to color their collages.

-Students first colored with crayons, then painted over that with watercolor tempera paint. This method is called a resist.

-These creative artists used their imaginations to see more than just lines and shapes in their artwork - they saw cities, apartments, sinks and even cake! Take a look at their interesting titles!
