R-tworx: Kandinsky

20131016-101153.jpg

Our first R-tworx session of the season began with bold colors and interesting textures inspired by the art of Wassily Kandinsky.  This artist is best known for his painting “Concentric Circles” which is the most reproduced abstract artworks in the world! Our students played with bold rainbow colours and texture plates to achieve a layered background.  The circles were painted on separate paper, cut and assembled after their backgrounds had dried.  The class had children from ages 6 -12 and each child was able to contribute a stunning and original piece.   For a complete tutorial please visit: HERE

Splatter Paint Fun

This week at R-tworkz we decided to splatter paint! It was super fun but it does tend to get a little messy, it’s definitely an outside project! And don’t forget washable paint! We also modge podged boxes for Father’s Day over all it was an awesome day for art!

This week for R-tworkz we made illustrations inspired by Eric Carle! The kids started by drawing their illustrations, and then moved on to painting designs on tissue paper! From there we cut pieces of tissue paper and glued it on to our masterpieces until it was all filled in and voila! We had beautiful Eric Carle themed illustrations! We’re hoping everyone comes back next wee for our gigantic cardboard box fort!
