Piet Mondrian


November 14th
In Art today we learned about Piet Mondrian and one of his famous works of art.  Then we created our own Mondrian compositions.

Piet Mondrian (1872-1944)

Mondrian was famous for his abstract art.  He valued simplicity.  He painted using just the primary colours and simple geometric shapes.

Here is a sample of a few of the fabulous paintings our grade three students did, Mondrian style!

 Mondrian Day Two (Nov.21)

Today we looked at some of Mondrian's famous abstract tree paintings.

Below is a picture of our bulletin board with our Mondrian style trees.  I think they look striking!  These were made with oil pastels.
