4th grade Kandinsky Abstract Art

4th graders have been studying the abstract style of Wassily Kandinsky. They learned about his condition called "synesthesia" where the senses are mixed up allowing people to "hear" colors and "see" sounds. For Kandinsky, music and art were very much connected! We listened to some music and envisioned what it might look like if we could see music. Then we used simple shapes in a grid like Kandinsky's circles to create our work with our own versions of abstract art in the frame. We also worked with mixing primary colors  to get secondary colors!
