PVES Enhancement Update
What is going on in those enhancement classes?
Welcome to the Park View Enhancement Newsletter!
First and Second grade students have been learning about the Russian artist, Wassily Kandinsky. Kandinsky grew up loving music. He loved colors also and even remarked as a child that the colors of nature dazzled him. The students learned that colors and music greatly influenced his artwork. He believed that colors could visually convey emotion in visual art just like the notes of music can convey emotion when people hear it. Kandinsky also believed that shape and line worked with color to express emotions in a drawing or painting as well. Many paintings that Kandinsky painted contained shapes, especially concentric circles. Students learned about concentric circles and created their very own concentric circles. After creating our colorful concentric circles, each student in the first and second grade put up their circle in the hallway to make colorful Kandinsky Trees. They learned that concentric circles are all around us, (i.e. a tree trunk, eyes, the ripples in water when raindrops hit it, an archery or dart game target, the symbol for the Target store, tires or wheels, a bird’s eye view of a tiered cake, a ship’s wheel, a sliced onion, some clocks).
