Piet Mondrian practical life art

To go along with our introduction of primary colors we showed the children paintings from the artist Piet Mondrian. We then set up an art lesson in practical life. It has a ruler, 8.5x11 white papers cut in quarters, a black marker for the lines and we wanted to use a bright vivid crayon for the primary colors. We found that our crayola dry erase crayons were perfect.
This is the example of a Mondrian painting we left up for the kids
This beautiful one was created by one of our kindergarten artists
and this amazing one was created by one of the preschoolers

Thanks to Sasha at To the Lesson for saving me from presenting this in all the wrong ways!
