Kindergarten Abstract Art

Kindergarteners learned about the artwork of Piet Mondrian. We looked at his paintings. We found lines, both horizontal and vertical. We found shapes and colors too. We talked about abstract Art as being artwork that isn't a painting of a tree, or anything recognizable. It's art about feelings and it makes people think about what they artist was thinking. We collaged black construction paper lines, reviewing horizontal and vertical lines. We tried to make shapes with our lines. The next art class we discussed texture. How something feels, or looks like it feels, is texture. We used oil pastels and rubbing plates to give our art texture. Lastly, we painted over  the pastels in watercolors, remembering, mostly, to was our brushes before changing colors.
