Mr. Mondrian

Every year I love teaching about Piet Mondrian. One reason is because I love his artwork. Another reason is that almost every grade is capable of creating a beautiful Mondrian. Last year I taught Mondrian to 4th graders and we painted. This year first graders are discovering Mondrian. Instead of painting, we are using colored tissue paper. Our vocabulary words are:

  • Primary Colors
  • Squares
  • Rectangles
  • Vertical
  • Horizontal
  • Outline

For our black lines, we used big fat black crayons. These always look greate displayed as a large cluster.
