Kandinsky Circles

First Grade students studied the work of Wassily Kandinsky.  We discussed his use of geometric shapes to create abstract artwork.  Kandinsky was particularly fond of circle and thought this shape had endless possibilities.  After creating our own concentric circles, similar to Kandinsky's work, we discussed color.  Students learned how colors look different depending on the company they keep.  We looked at various optical illusions involving color to prove this point.  Finally students experimented with their own color combinations using chalk pastels
