Kindergarten Mini Mondrians


At Hudsonville Public Schools, each elementary grade has at least three artists they are required to be introduced to. Kindergarten students learn about the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. Mondrian is such a great artist for Kindergarteners to learn about because he painted with Primary colors and straight lines. He really liked horizontal and vertical lines. Kindergarteners at Georgetown Elementary created “Mini Mondrians” by using small squares of paper and gluing on strips of Primary colored construction paper. They glued four mini squares onto their large black square to create their project. Students were allowed to make an extra mini square to take home to show their family.

New Year, New Projects

We are settling back in after Christmas break – and gearing up with new and exciting projects!

Kindergarten kiddos enjoyed learning about Mondrian this week, along with a review of primary colors, shapes, and lines.  We explored Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie and learned about horizontal and vertical lines.

And then it was our turn to create our own Boogie Woogie – we glued black construction paper lines to a 12×12 sheet of paper, and chose our 4 favorite colors to finish our Georgetown Boogie Woogies.
