Piet Mondrian was an abstract artist who believed that all objects can be reduced to the simplest of forms. His abstract compositions, based on primary colors and black lines have influenced designers, marketers and art lovers the world over.
These three Mondrian-inspired lessons are designed for children in grades 1-4. All lessons combine the Elements of Art (Shape, Color, Line) with basic math principles such as using a straight edges, creating right angles and drawing a grid.
The lessons progress in difficulty so that you can choose which lesson is right for your group.
