"We flourish not for our own sake, but so we can look outwards and give."


'Together We Grow: Together We Give' - Ezekiel 47 : 12


Hello! In today's art session we will be looking at the works of Kandinsky in our final session on abstract art this half term. 


In Slide 3 (below) the first few slides show some of Kandinsky's later paintings alongside quotes explaining his theories about colour. Would you link these colours with the same ideas, or different ones?

Composition X, 1939:  Kandinsky sometimes mixed paint with sand to create textured effects in his later paintings. 

Today you will be making their own Kandinsky-inspired, abstract paintings based on the ideas you have developed last week. 

 Try changing the way shapes are arranged in your design before you start painting, to see if you can find a composition you prefer.

As an additional challenge you can try mixing other textures into your painting like sand (or granulated sugar!) to see if you can recreate some of these effects too!

Today's Challenges - choose from A, B C, or D

Fancy something different? 

Using art software with 'layers' such as Dazzle, GIMP, Photoshop, can you create an abstract work of art inspired by one of the Photo Cards?  Challenge Card 3D explains how to use the software to draw each element in a separate layer, so they can be moved around. Once you have drawn all their elements and moved them around to find a pleasing composition, your picture could be printed!
