2nd graders learned about the artist, Piet Mondrian. This was a great review of the primary colors. On day one of the project we learned about Mondrian and looked at his work. We watched this video to get us in the "Boogie Woogie" mood:
Students then used masking tape to create squares and rectangles.
On day two of the project students used the primary colors: red, yellow, and blue to paint the squares and rectangles. On day three of the project students used primary colored construction paper squares and rectangles to add to the already painted paper. To finish off I allowed students to use silver paint on a few spaces.
