Kandinsky inspired creations

This week Ladybird class have been exploring and investigating different textures. It has been very messy but enjoyable for them. This has helped the children build their vocabulary using words such as slimy, sticky and lumpy to describe different sensory experiences.  All of the children have tried these activities, some more than others! We have explored the textures of dried oats, spaghetti, cornflour and shaving foam. We have had the opportunity to use them in our play e.g. scissors for cutting spaghetti, oats for mixing, cornflour for dripping and drizzling and shaving foam for filling containers.

We have been learning about the artist Kandinsky who worked in an art style called Expressionism.  Expressionists wanted to use art to express their feelings and emotions, usually through bold us of line and colour.  Using one of Kandinsky’s colour studies “Square with Concentric Circles” as a starting point the children have been exploring and creating circles.  The children had different sized paper circles, they glued them to the paper creating a collage. Some children were able to glue smaller circles inside larger ones to create an image of concentric circles.
