My SMART goal this year is about Kindergarten students being able to identify and draw basic geometric shapes. I am doing one project that focuses on each shape. Kandinsky's Farbstudie Quadrate was the inspiration for the circle project. Last year when I did this project, I asked all students to make their concentric circles on a grid, like Kandinsky. (See the first few photos below.)
My approach to learning about the artist stayed the same but this year I realized that the grid wasn't necessary so I gave the students more choices. My regular classes used markers and crayons and my double Kindergarten class did a wax resist version. (I got permission to take one class at a time into the Art room while a Para led the other class in play-doh sculptures in the cafeteria.) I really like the free style circle drawings.
