Each year we begin with rules, shapes and colors. Below you will find some amazing primary circles (red, yellow and blue) and secondary colors (purple, orange and green) inspire by Kandinsky and Jazz.
Third Graders created fall trees and sunsets after looking at the work of Gustav Klimt an Austrian Artist who I was lucky enough to see his work in Austria. We discussed how trees cast different shadows during the day and that the also vary on the time of the year it is.
Forth Grade looked at the buildings the Hundertwasser created as well as pictures I took of his building while I was in Vienna, Austria. We discussed how Hundertwasser was concerned with disturbing nature and would include roof top gardens atop his buildings and parking structures to help balance nature. My students were encouraged to create a city scape that included 5 building with 2 or more overlapping and turrets atop several. Students need to include windows that reflected their sky. They needed to include designs on their work.
