The children of Junior Kindergarten 3 were recently inspired by the work of Piet Mondrian during their Visual Arts Co Curricular. Mondrian was a Dutch painter who lived in France when he began producing grid-based paintings in late 1919.
Visual Arts at CEFA can take many forms from drawings to paintings, using many different skills and materials. The children also have an opportunity to build three dimensional art using clay and a wide variety of materials. CEFA Langley’s Mondrian inspired art below:
On this day, the children could be heard saying:
“You have to keep the line straight.”
“We have to go slowly.”
“I want to use the yellow.”
“I believe it is possible that, through horizontal and vertical lines constructed with awareness, but not with calculation, led by high intuition, and brought to harmony and rhythm, these basic forms of beauty, supplemented if necessary by other direct lines or curves, can become a work of art, as strong as it is true.”
