Draw repeated concentric polygons to create visual balance.
Use warm or colors expressively.
This art lesson corresponds to California Visual and Performing Arts Standards:
2.4 Create a painting or drawing, using warm or cool colors expressively.
2.5 Use bilateral or radial symmetry to create visual balance.
Tell students that today we will make an art project inspired by Wassily Kandinsky.
Show students "Color Study. Squares with Concentric Circles" on document camera.
With "Color Study. Squares with Concentric Circles" still projected, ask students what shapes they see in the painting.
Tell students that while Kandinsky used circles in his painting, we will be using polygons today. Ask the students if they know what a polygon is. Remind students that a polygon is a plane shape with at least three straight sides and angles. Have the class brainstorm different polygons, writing them on the board.
