Are you trying to cultivate self-reliance in your art room? This Wassily Kandinsky art game makes for the best and most productive early finisher activity for your students.
Set up a choice-based art center where students select an activity amongst different ones. Print out the game board and directions back to back, put them in a labeled folders, and let them pick what they'd like to create. This is similar to a directed drawing activity in which students are guided through the art process.
If you're an art teacher looking for a differentiated art lesson that boosts independent thinking, problem-solving, and skill-acquisition, this will do the trick.
In art, there are four main ways to differentiate: by the outcome of the project, the task at hand, the supplemental resources given to students, and the amount of support offered to each student. Despite students selecting designs from the same Wassily Kandinsky game board, the outcome of each project is unique to the creator.
I've included three ways students can generate their design. The first is the game board where students roll the die to select their parts. The second is a "you pick" board. Both of these are printables. And lastly, for teachers needing engaging lessons during distance learning, I've added digital spinner wheels!

WASSILY KANDINSKY ART GAME DIRECTIONS
You will create a Kandinsky-style watercolor by rolling the die and collecting the different parts required to create it.
- To begin, roll the die twice to select two abstract shapes from the first column.
- Then, roll two more times to select another two abstract shapes from the second column.
- Next, roll three times to choose three lines from the third column.
- Overlap some of these lines on shapes throughout your design.
- Then, roll two more times to determine which two geometric shapes you’ll use from the fourth column.
- Lastly, roll two more times to pick the last two geometric shapes you’ll draw from the fifth column.
- Use watercolor paints to fill it in, blending colors where they meet and filling other shapes in with solid colors.
- Finish it off by outlining everything in black permanent marker.
