1 Red Art Week – Kandinsky

In art week One Red were looking at the famous artist Kandinsky. The children had the opportunity to watch a video about the history of Kandinsky. They learned that Kandinsky was born in Moscow Russia on the 16th of December in 1866. He had a saying and that saying was “everything starts with a dot”. The children used that information and formed a dot on a piece of paper and took their pencil for a walk. They made their own Kandinsky inspired pieces, remembering to colour nicely ensuring they stayed inside the lines. The children have enjoyed looking at Kandinsky’s art work and the ‘Concentric Circles’ to recreate their own circles using paint and oil pastels. Whilst looking at Kandinsky’s pieces of art, the children picked up on some shapes in his painting and we learnt about tessellation using shape. The children were encouraged to create a pattern using tessellation to see what would happen when moving the shape around their sketch books. Lexi said “The triangle has a point at the top of the shape and when you move the triangle around the point moves around the page”.

Can you answer these questions?
1. What type of art is Kandinsky most famous for?
2. Can you name a piece of Kandinsky’s art?
3. Where was Kandinsky born?
4. What was Kandinsky famous for saying?
5. Kandinsky travelled to a lot of places in his life. Can you name them?
