Mondrian

January 20th, 2011

We looked at a piece of art called Broadway Boogie Woogie by an artist called Pieter Mondrian.  He is famous for creating artwork using the primary colours.  To make our collages the class had to cut rectangles of different sizes.  They folded a piece of paper in half and then cut along the fold.  They then put one half to the side and repeated the process with the other half.  The children then mixed all their rectangles together and started to create their own collages, inspired by the picture Broadway Boogie Woogie.  When we were finished we found out about Mondrian on the interactive whiteboard.  Using Kidpix we created some artwork inspired by more of his work.
