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.
See more Mini Mondrians at our ARTSONIA on-line Art Gallery!
