Art Appreciation + Application

photo of: Mondrian in children's art, children's art from Master Artists, primary colors in Art
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?

  1. This is awesome - We did a whole unit of work in secondary school on Mondrian using plastics, wood stains and enamel I really hadn't thought about how it could be done with younger children but it would be so effective.

    1. Cerys. Truly young children could have all sorts of variations on this theme -- with ease. I'd LUV to see the projects that you're describing. If you are able to leave a link -- by all means, do so!


I LUV to hear from you! Please leave your thoughts so we can interact!!
