Bear really enjoys our art appreciation lessons but with J-jo not quite 3, we don’t always get to them. I signed up Bear for 4 trial lessons at an art school and was very disappointed in the art work that came home. It wasn’t art, it was crafts. I’ve come to the conclusion that I just can’t be lazy and will just have to depend upon myself to give Bear and J-jo a good start in art appreciation and art skills.
I eased back into art with a simple abstract project based on Piet Mondrian’s Composition II in Red.
- needs horizontal and vertical lines
- needs to have rectangles and squares
- can only use red, yellow, and blue
- leave white for contrast
