Parker, 1st, Mondrian

Parker, 1st, Mondrian, originally uploaded by a_stlkr.

Piet Mondrian was our focus as we studied geometric shapes and primary colors.
Objective: To construct a composition of primary colors and rectangular geometric shapes.
Process:
1. After discussing the work of Piet Mondrian and his attraction to geometry and primary colors, we set to work on our own composition.
2. Using a pencil we outlined various sized rectangular note cards, allowing rectangles to overlap and extend off the paper.
3. With a black crayon, we thickly traced our pencil marks.
4. We used tempera paint (primary colors only) to carefully paint in the rectangles.
5. Let dry and mount!

This was a fun, simple project. Some of the 1st graders took this opportunity, building shapes with rectangles, to create robots. I love imaginative thinking!
