3 Shape Sharpener Lets take a minute to review some shapes. Then well go on a hunt to find them during todays Art EDventure! O.k. class help me! What shape is this….? Hit enter for blue shape name Hit enter for the next shape Hit enter for yellow shape name- (after kids label it.) Het enter for the green shape Hit enter for shape name- (after the kids label it.) Hit enter for red shape and name! Good! Now we are ready to go shape searching! square Circle Triangle Rectangle 15

4 Meet Wassily Kandinsky Everything starts from a dot. 16

5 Vassily Wassily Kandinsky was born in Odessa, Russia a very long time ago. (About the time your great grandparents were alive!) People from Russia say his name with a V or Vassily. Can you say it like a Russian? When he was your age, he went to a classical gymnasium. Thats a funny Russia term for elementary school. Thats when he discovered that he had a zeal for art and music. Odessa, Russia 17

6 Painting Music Wassily Kandinsky was one smart guy! As a young adult, he was a very, very successful Law Professor. Then, he became a very, very successful Art Professor known for painting music. To Wassisly, a simple painting was like a musical solo (a song played by one instrument.) Likewise, a painting with a lot of lines, colors and shapes was like a song played by many instruments. Circles In A Circle If this painting was music, would one instrument or many instru- ments be playing? Why? Compositions IX 18

7 Kandinskys Creativity Kandinsky liked to paint things from his imagination. As you can see, his mind was full of lines, shapes, colors and songs! Some people loved his art, others thought is was goofy. Some people even wanted it destroyed! One Kindergartener liked Wassilys art because she thought this painting looked like time exploding. What do YOU think? Do you like this painting? Why or why not? Composition VIII What do you hear? 19

8 Shape Search Look at Wassilys painting and find these geometric shapes: -Circle -Half Circle -Square -Triangle -Rectangle Now look again, can you find parts of his painting where he combined these shapes together? (Hit enter and several shape combinations will be highlighted) Tension In Height 20

9 Delicious Color Some of his paintings didnt have a lot of geometric shapes-like this one. But it is full of fantastic colors. As a child, he would go into buildings in Russia, just to look at all the delicious colors. That is why he put a lot of them into his art. Can you name some colors he used in this painting? Sea Battle by Kandinsky 21

10 Lots of Lines Wassily used lots of lines too! Can you find these different kinds? –S–Straight –W–Wavy –C–Curvy –Z–Zig Zag Some lines are missing : –D–Dotted –S–Spiral Yellow, Red & Blue After the kids are done with their line hunt, hit enter 4 xs and each time they will be revealed. 22

11 Super Squircles This painting is called Color Study. Can you find the geometric combination in it? (Hit enter) Yes! There are several circles inside each other. All the circles are inside a square. And many squares are inside a rectangle! Now it is your turn to paint music like Kandinsky! Color Study- Square with Concentric Circle 23

12 Art EDventures Sample We will turn on some tunes and each one of you will paint a deliciously colorful watercolor squircle! What are squircles? Why…circles inside a square piece of paper! Then well put all our squircles together to make a class Kandinsky! Class Squircles 24

13 Project Art EDventures Choose a color copy of a Kandinsky circle. Grab a white square of wet/dry media paper. Get a rectangular box of watercolor paints. Fill both your round cups with water. Listen to the music and have fun! Before you begin, sign your name then Draw the Paw so others know it is a PTA Art EDventures creation. 25

14 Supply List Class Kit of Crayola watercolor paints with brush. Wet/Dry Media Paper- cut into 6 x 6 squares. Water Bowls and Cups. Place the small cup inside the large bowl and fill both with water. Tell the kids to use the inside cup for dirty water and the outside cup for clean water. Paper Towels- show the kids how they can use the paper towel to clean their brushes between colors. Laminate-please laminate all your squircles before displaying. You may use the laminating machine in the copy room. Black Roll Paper- to mount your class Kandinsky! TIP-Have the kids paint their squircle starting from the inside out like a target. This seems to help keep keep them from smearing the paint a bit more than usual! 26

15 G.P.S. Ties MKG1 Students will correctly name simple two and three dimensional figures, and recognize them in the environment. a.Recognize and name the following basic two-dimensional figures: triangles, rectangles, squares, and circles. b.Recognize and name the following three-dimensional figures: spheres (balls) and cubes. c. Observe concrete objects in the environment and represent the objects using basic shapes, such as drawing a representation of a house using a square together with a triangle for the roof. d. Combine basic shapes into basic and more complicated shapes, and will decompose basic shapes into combinations of basic shapes. e. Compare geometric shapes and identify similarities and differences of the following two and three-dimensional shapes: triangles, rectangles, squares, circles, spheres, and cubes. 27

16 Dear Mom, Dad or Caretaker, I took an Art EDventure today called Super Squircles. What is a squircle you ask? Its Art Edventures way of making learning about geometric combinations fun! Squircles are circles painted inside a square piece of paper! We learned about an artist from Russia named Wassily Kandinsky. Then we went hunting for shapes, lines and colors in his paintings. Ask me about my fun watercolor project! I painted a squircle of my very own. Then we put them all together to make a class version of a Kandinsky painting.
