I just love teaching Mondrian to first graders as one of the first artists they learn about. I try each year to change up the creative process a bit. This year the students did prints with cardboard dipped in paint to create the black lines then they went back the next art class and added color with oil pastel. One of our new curriculum goals is to have students collaborate on a work of art together. This gave me the idea for students to create these Mondrian cubes with their table mates. Plus, a neat way to work with the same subject matter in 2-D and 3-D! Also, check out my new art ed shirt!
