Georgetown fourth grade artists are finishing up a big Kandinsky project this week. The project is stunning, and we can’t wait to hang these in the hallway!
After looking at Kandinsky’s Several Circles No. 323 and discussing abstract art, we got started.
Several Circles No. 323
We began by thinking about texture and color as we created our background.
Next came tempera paint in rainbow order, with a little white thrown in for playing with tints.
painting – rainbow order
We traced circles and painted over our marker lines with black tempera paint.

Then – more color, this time thinking about warm and cool colors as we painted the circles.
One more look at Kandinsky’s circle painting and a big discussion about eye path and leading the viewer through the artwork by using shape and color….and finally, cutting our circles, carefully placing them on the background, and gluing the circles down. The results….stunning.
