PIET MONDRIAN Piet Mondrian was a Dutch painter who was born in 1872. At one time, Mondrian painted realistic landscapes, but as he painted more and more, his style began to change. He started to create abstract images and eventually his style consisted of geometric shapes and primary colors. After all, every shape can be created from the basic geometric shapes and every color can be created from the primary colors - red, yellow, and blue. His art movement still influences our world today through architecture, graphic design, and advertisement. Our kindergarten art classes create a painting in this Mondrian style. They learn the basics of drawing straight lines with a ruler, then they will place black glue over the straight pencil lines. They become familiar with the terms horizontal and vertical. The next step involves painting in the geometric shapes that form (squares and rectangles). Students must decide which shapes to paint and what primary colors to use in each to make a pleasing balanced (symmetrical or asymmetrical) design. Some objectives are to define and create an abstract art work, introduce the artist Piet Mondrian, form and identify geometric shapes, introduce primary colors in a meaningful way. The simplest forms of creating art can be the most educational!
