1st grade - Mondrian paintings

The first grade classes learned a little about the painter, Piet Mondrian. They learned that he lived during both WWI and WWII. During WWII, he lived in Paris, but decided to move to London to escape from the battle. Then, when London was no longer safe, he moved to New York, where he lived for the rest of his life.

His paintings are fun because they are easy for first grade students to understand. Lines and primary colors! This group of paintings was done by Mrs. Cowley's class. They placed masking tape onto black paper, then painted with tempera paint. Once the paint was dry, they removed the masking tape to reveal black lines! Very fun!
