15 Good! Now we are ready to go shape searching! Shape SharpenerLet’s take a minute to review some shapes. Then we’ll go on a “hunt” to find them during today’s Art EDventure!O.k. class help me! What shape is this….?Hit enter for blue shape nameHit enter for the next shapeHit enter for yellow shape name-(after kids label it.)Het enter for the green shapeHit 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!squareCircleRectangleSpeaker notes: Please do this quick shape review with the kids before talking about Wassily Kandinsky.Triangle
16 Meet Wassily Kandinsky Ask the kids- Can a shape start from just a dot? How about a circle…?This image is a painting of Kandinsky. It started with a dot of paint and grew into what you see now!“Everything starts from a dot.”
17 “V”assilyWassily 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. That’s a funny Russia term for elementary school. That’s when he discovered that he had a zeal for art and music.Odessa, RussiaSpeaker Notes: Show the kids where Russia is on the big pull down map.Have fun- make the entire class say his name with their best Russian accent!You can point out the building in the picture. Russia is famous for the domed buildings in the upper right.
18 Painting MusicWassily 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.Compositions IX“Circles In A Circle”If this painting was music, would one instrument or many instru-ments be playing? Why?
19 Kandinsky’s 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 Wassily’s 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?
20 Shape SearchLook at Wassily’s painting and find these geometric shapes:-Circle-Half Circle-Square-Triangle-RectangleNow look again, can you find parts of his painting where hecombined these shapes together?(Hit enter and several shape combinations will be highlighted)Speaker Notes: Have the kids come up front and outline the shapes of things they see on the screen (if they can reach.) Then, hit enter and several geometric combintions will be highlighted with red markers. (This covers the G.P.S. standards.)The highlighted combinations are:The Sun-has several circles inside it.The Building/Skyscraper-has several rectangles stacked and 3 triangles at the tippy top.The Surfboard -has 6 triangles on the top half and 8 long rectangles in the middle and two more triangles on the bottom half.“Tension In Height”
21 “Sea Battle” by Kandinsky Delicious ColorSome of his paintings didn’t 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?Speak Notes:Ask the kids to raise their hands with the answers. Call on several children, get them to interact!Answers: This kids will probably call out the standard color names. Make it a game and ask them to restate their color but this time make it delicious! Examples:yellow,-to make it “delicious” - lemon yellowred-to make is delicious- cherry red!blue-make it delicious- bubble gum blue!Etc, etc, orange, green and black.You can ask them why he named this painting “Sea Battle.” (It’s fun to hear their answers.)“Sea Battle” by Kandinsky
22 Lots of Lines Wassily used lots of lines too! Can you find these different kinds?StraightWavyCurvyZig ZagSome lines are missing:DottedSpiralSpeaker Notes:Have the kids come up and touch the screen to show the various types of lines. AFTER they are done hit “enter” and red markers will appear marking examples of the four different lines. (It will not show them all.)Straight ( hit enter) and a circle will appear around straight linesWavy (hit enter) and a rectangle will appear around waving linesCurvy (hit enter) and a circle will appear around curvyZig Zag (hit enter) and a rectangle will appear around zig zag lines“Yellow, Red & Blue”After the kids are done with their line hunt , hit enter 4 x’s and each time they will be revealed.
23 Square with Concentric Circle” 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”Speaker Notes:On this slide after you hit enter blue markers will demonstrate where the circles, squares and rectangels are in this painting.Please turn on some tunes and have fun!
24 Art EDventures SampleClass “Squircles”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 we’ll put all our “squircles” together to make a class Kandinsky!
25 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.
26 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!
27 G.P.S. TiesMKG1 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.
28 Art EDventures Made possible with your donations to S.H.E.’s PTA Dear Mom, Dad or Caretaker,I took an Art EDventure today called “Super Squircles.” What is a “squircle” you ask? It’s Art Edventure’s 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.Wassily Kandinsky “Color Study-Square With Concentric CirclesDear Mom, Dad or Caretaker,I took an Art EDventure today called “Super Squircles.” What is a “squircle” you ask?
