1st graders studied the artist Wassily Kandinsky and abstract art. They learned that abstract art doesn’t show a person, place, or thing; but rather includes lines, shapes, and colors and can be interrupted differently by anyone who views it.They also learned about the secondary colors: green, orange, and purple. They did a color mixing worksheet where they discovered when certain primary colors are mixed together they then create the secondary colors.
Students stamped overlapping circles on their papers. In the areas that were not overlapping they colored in using the primary colors. The areas that were overlapping they colored in a secondary color, looking at which two primary colors were overlapping to figure out the secondary.
