First up was Mondrian with 2nd grade. Which I know SNOOZE, but really, I love colors and primary colors so its a natural attraction for me! I got this lesson from a pinterest post from here and here.
|Picked for Youth Art Month Display!|
Day 2: Colored with two different materials for the last two primaries. And went over their lines in sharpie to be a little more like Mondrian. A few finished and I showed them 1:1 how to then turn their Mondrian into a "creature"
Day 3: Turned the basic Mondrians into creatures, I say "creature" because some took the route of MineCraft and dragons etc. The only rule was something with a face! They drew the shape of the creature on the white side and cut it out and used scraps of black, white, and other colors they needed to complete the creature. Last but not least naming it after Mondrian with either Mondrian or Piet!
Extension Day: Some classes took longer to complete this so if that happened I had a take home that day extension project of using precut strips and squares to create Mondrian style artwork. I also showed them really cool stop animation videos on YouTube. There is a TON! The one below is a favorite!

Loved how these turned out and the process. Wouldn't of changed a thing (except showing more videos)!
These two also made the YAM art show!
