Mondrian Comes to Moriah Kindergarten

Moriah kindergartners have been fascinated by the colors all around them. They learned about the colors in a rainbow and how to mix the primary colors to form secondary colors. This week they discovered a famous artist who used mostly primary colors in his work. This artist is Piet Mondrian, a Dutch artist best known for his abstract paintings. Art that is abstract does not show things that are recognizable such as people, objects or landscapes. Instead artists use colors, shapes and textures to achieve their effect. Mondrian was also passionate about dancing! He even called one of his abstract paintings Broadway Boogie Woogie after a popular dance of the time. The children observed from prints how Mondrian created his design in horizontal and vertical lines using the primary colors, red, blue and yellow, along with black and white. Following Mondrian’s style and using drawing paper, strips of black paper and primary color paints, each artist created a lovely work of art, titling and signing their work.
