Tapping into Kandinsky

Unit II students in Doherty art teacher Kacey Watkins’ class recently studied the work of Wassily Kandinsky and created colorful weavings reflecting the artists’ work. Student started out by painting paper plates with circles inspired by Kandinsky’s Squares with Concentric Circles painting and then proceeded to paint patterns to add interest. “Once the plates were dry, students learned how to create a loom and weave with a variety of yarn and beads,” said Watkins. “It was difficult to find a stopping point to this project as students enjoyed the rhythm of the weaving process.”
