Abstract art is not an easy concept to understand. This lesson introduces students to two of the early abstract artists, Kandinsky and Mondrian, and explains the intent behind their artwork.
Students then get to create their own abstract images by using a viewfinder to crop images in a magazine. Color matching is also practiced by drawing and painting a larger version of the abstract image they discovered.
