Playful Abstracts - Kandinski Inspired!

Paint Your ART Out was a lot of playful fun this week! 

Inspired by Wassily Kandinski's "Circles in a Circle" and
"Composition VIII" (left), we traced in pencil all manner of circles using CDs, masking tape, paper cups, plates, and anything else we could find. Then we added ruler lines to make long and short lines, angles, and repeated lines.

We then masked off geometric shapes on our watercolor paper, added a bit of oil pastel here and there (for its resist effect), and painted everything with watercolor. 

Once it was dry, we pulled off the tape and WOW! These are cool! The artwork can now be left as is, or the student can continue to develop the design with ink or markers later:
