Abstract Art

Today room 4 took a deep look at the artistic work of the infamous Wassily Kandinsky. Today we learned that Kandinsky was an influential Russian painter and art theorist. He is credited with painting the first purely abstract works. That makes him a very important person within the history of art! But what is abstract art?

Today room 4 discussed that abstract art does not attempt to represent recognizable reality, but seeks to achieve its effect using differing shapes, lines, colors and textures. We critiqued Kandinskys art by comparing his abstract paintings. We looked for the descending series of circles, triangles and squares - as well as discussed what we saw, and shared the feelings that the paintings evoked.

We wanted to experiment on our own! We started to experiment, and create our own abstract art pieces.

We will keep you posted with our artistic process!
