Kandinsky Common Core Art

How many art projects include art history, Common Core standards AND make something really striking?

Not many, and I’ve been at this for quite awhile now. This project was inspired by Kandinsky’s Color Study painting, and involves partitioning a square into four equal areas. To be exact, that is Common Core standard 3.G.A.2 (2nd grade geometry). Start with some inexpensive plastic plates, color them with brush Sharpies, and you have a pretty amazing work of art that is ready for display.

MATERIALS
• Yoshi Plates, 6.5″ square
• Marker, water based such as Crayola
• Brush Sharpie markers

DIRECTIONS

1. Use a water based marker to divide the plate into four equal sections.
If a mistake is made, it can easily be rubbed off to try again.

 

2. Use the brush Sharpie markers to make triangles create a diamond shape.

 

3. Continue adding thick lines around the diamond to build the design.

 

4. Add lines around the diamond until the plate is filled with color.
