Mad for Mondrian

After a few hectic and unsettling weeks, this week I decided to do some artist study with the boys. We selected Mondrian, and the boys have created two masterpieces each in his style.

First, using black electrical tape and coloured paper:

Mondrian - R
Mondrian - G

Then following instructions from “That Little Art Teacher” to create these Mondrian style animals.

Waif went for a fish:

And Gman for a turtle:

Aren’t they super? We actually took the paints and things outside and sat in the garden doing these (hooray for the flexibility of home education!), and because I can never resist joining in, I even made an animal of my own:

Mondrian Snake
