I recently included a Kandinsky quote and painting in my weekly email newsletter (the newsletter goes out every Friday). It sent me down a bit of a Kandinsky rabbit hole. I stumbled onto a German website that I believe is for elementary school teachers. They had a fascinating lesson suggestion that I had to try for myself.
STEP ONE - Laminate a design of colored tissue paper and black construction paper pieces. No need to fill the whole lamination pouch. Think about design.
STEP TWO - Laminate a design of just colored tissue paper. Try to fill the whole pouch. Think of it as a background.
Now why would a grown-up artist be interested in this exercise? Well, take a peek at what a difference the background can make:
And one of the nice things about the clear lamination pouch is that you can flip everything all around for lots of variety.
Thanks for stopping by!
