Spectacular Second Graders~ Kandinsky Planets!

Second graders also studied the paintings of Wassily Kandinsky. We learned that Kandinsky was born with an extra special "sixth sense" named Synesthesia, a rare but real neurological phenomenon that let him hear colors!
Because of that, both music and color had a huge impact on his art. He was especially fond of circles and after looking at his paintings we thought they reminded us of planets in our solar system!
{"Unbroken Line" 1923}
First, we created an abstract painting using many colors and painting tools including scrapers and rubber band brushes!
{"Blue Painting Vasily Kandinsky"1866}
Our planets were cut from our Abstract paintings and glued to a background where we added rings, and pastel stars and comets.

The results were amazing!
