Art Appreciation + Application

Do you love this work? I DO!!!!

The ol' Art teacher in me just smiles so widely at seeing this sort of work in the hallways!
Can you name the artist for whom this work reflects their style?  

Back a few decades ago when I was the elementary art teacher for a brand new building K through 6th grade, these pieces could have been displayed outside of my room. Have you thought of the name?

First name: Piet.
Dutch painter.
Non-representational, later termed: Neo-Plasticism.
Remember your Art History class?

Need a first letter?
Collage of four different student's Mondriaan creations......... AWESOME!!!!!
of course!!!

Younger children could use this conceptual approach for a study in primary colors.
Or how about geometry?
