Mondrian art is the kindergarteners’ first introduction to art class. Where do we begin? We start at the very beginning with lines; horizontal and vertical lines. The students learn that when lines touch they create shapes. Lines and shapes are a great place to start. The students observe the artwork of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, the father of geometric abstraction. The students can clearly observe the use of horizontal and vertical lines, and the square and rectangular shapes within Mondrian’s work. The students also observe the colors red, yellow and blue within Mondrian’s works. They will learn that red, yellow, and blue are called primary colors and they will use primary colors to make their artworks unique.
