Now that we have a little art corner in our main room, what we needed next was a little something to brighten it up!

Using The Usborne Art Treasury, we replicated Kandinsky’s “Squares with Concentric Circles” painting. Page 53 shows the original artwork, with the opposite page describing a bit about Kandinsky and color. The next two pages walk you through making your own color contrasts artwork.

We used oil pastels for the circles and watercolor for the squares. The oil pastels show through the paint.

While most of the time I want Satori to concentrate on her own very original artwork, without copying step-by-step instructions, this book is still so much fun and has so many colorful projects.

A year ago we did another project from this book – “The Aquarium”.
