Second Grade Concentric Circles

In Second grade we studied the abstract art of Wassily Kandinsky and used his masterpiece, Concentric Cirlcles as our inspiration for this oil pastel, water color resist project.  The children folded their papers into 8 even spaces and then used oil pastels to draw circles. They "started with a dot," which is one of Kandinsky's famous quotes and we read the book, "The Dot" to get our circles going!  After the circles were drawn, the children used red, yellow and blue to make as many secondary and tertiary colors! They did a fantastic job. 

I just love how these turned out! Great job 2nd Grade!
