Kindergarten: Abstraction in Action

Kindergarten finished their color wheels at the beginning of the week and leapt into the final stretch of color lessons. We studied a few examples of abstract art, and talked about making motion through line. Then we started making on our own pieces.

By using thick paint, bright colors, and bold brushstrokes, students created a variety of beautiful abstractions with fun, touchable textures. Despite the serious faces while working, the Kindergarten class told me they had really enjoyed the project, so we decided to do one more with watercolors.

The second painting was a semi-abstract landscape. Students used crayons to draw trees on two sheets of paper, and then painted over them with watercolors to make abstract backgrounds in cool colors and warm colors.
