Year 2 have been looking at the work of the famous Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky. We looked carefully at his painting ‘Concentric Cicles’. The children liked all the bright colours he used and thought it looked like a patchwork with lots of squares of circles. Together we decided that we would create our own.
First the children drew some concentric circles onto a square piece of paper. They started with one colour, painting the centre of the circle with this. The children then gradually mixed another colour to this colour painting each circle with the new colour they had made. The children were very excited to see the new colours. Each child’s square of colour mixing have been placed together to create ‘Year 2’s Colour Mixing Concentric Circles’.
The finished piece looks fantastic. Well done Year 2!
