Kid Art: Kandinsky Color Studies

Drawing inspiration from Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky and his circle color studies I worked with students using construction paper and oil pastel to create two different projects.

Younger students drew circles within circles on their canvases then filled each circle with color. The goal was to leave very little white space, and use bold color palettes.

Older students used torn construction paper (no scissors!) to create abstract (not perfect!) circles, and added rings of oil pastel in contrasting colors.

So bold and beautiful! This was the perfect project to display in the classroom.
