Mondrian with a power outage!







Many years ago, I actually thought I created this lesson based on the artist Mondrian. Ha, little did I know a zillion art teachers do this.  Why? Because it is so successful and touches on so many standards for our little kindergartners. Line, long line, cross body movement with the brush, color etc...
We had a power outage today and still had art class. The students were amazing. We shared power outage stories while our eyes adjusted to the window light and created these paintings. Happily the power was repaired by the last class. I'm so proud of these artists.
