Circles


This week in our home-school art class we explored the idea of circles in art in a similar fashion to the artist Wassily Kandinsky.

Wassily Kandinsky’s color study, Squares with Concentric Circles.

Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky (16 December 1866 – 13 December 1944) was an influential Russian painter and art theorist. He is credited with painting the first purely abstract works. Born in Moscow, Kandinsky spent his childhood in Odessa. He enrolled at the University of Moscow, studying law and economics. Successful in his profession—he was offered a professorship (chair of Roman Law) at the University of Dorpat—he began painting studies (life-drawing, sketching and anatomy) at the age of 30.

The students had a lot of fun folding paper, drawing circles and mixing colors of watercolor paint.

Learning to control the brush in a circular motion is a very difficult task.

This project required a lot of focus and concentration.

Everyone had fun as they explored color through creating concentric circular shapes.

Everyone was surprised at how quickly the time flew by as the creative process was in full swing.
