We are back!!!

We are back at it and the second grade artists are learning about the artist Kandinsky. We learned all about how he was a fauve artist and hung out with Der Blaue Reiter group. The student artists also learned that kandinsky painted what he thought music would look like. The students have learned the difference between a still life, abstract, portrait and a landscape painting. What a fun way to start the year. We made mono-prints and finished them with black pastels, all while listening to the cool sounds of Luis Bonfa.
