Experiment with primary colors and geometric shapes in the style of Piet Mondrian! Create a template to make one huge, ultramodern design!
Research art and theories of painting by Dutch artist Piet Mondrian (1872-1944). Notice his use of primary colors and basic geometric shapes divided by solid black lines. Find out how Mondrian used these basic shapes to represent real objects.
Cut 1/4-inch (6 mm) strips of oak tag or recycled file folders. Use them to create a grid-like web with various shapes of negative spaces between the strips, much like the black lines in a Mondrian painting.
Use Crayola School Glue to place your pieces in a web that is slightly larger than Crayola Color Explosion™ paper. Air-dry your web.
Lay your web template on top of the black side of Color Explosion paper. Tape the edges to your art surface to hold the template in place.
Trace several of the shapes along the web’s edges. Refer back to a Mondrian painting to help determine how many lines should be left solid and black. When you are satisfied, remove the web.
Choose several shapes to fill with color. Consider the balance of your artwork---spread out the shapes you color. Use sweeping lines that barely overlap. Enjoy the BURST of color that Mondrian could have only dreamed about!
