Joseph Albers was an artist who liked to explore how colors interact with each other. He noticed that red looked different when placed next to green than it did when surrounded by violet. He created many painting of squares within squares to show what he learned about the interaction of color.
Second graders explored color as well. However, instead of using the square we painted circles within circles. Once our circles were complete we veered away from Joseph Albers and added a variety of patterns to each ring of color. These paintings will also be used for our next project...stay tuned!
