After giving up a promising career in law, Kandinsky became a painter, an author, and a teacher at the Bauhaus School of Art in Germany.
He loved color and music, and he believed they were closely related in many ways.
Kandinsky's "Squares With Concentric Circles" is a great piece of artwork for children to imitate because it is so colorful and playful. It is also a great opportunity for students to identify and explore different color arrangements, such as using all warm, cool, analogous, or complementary colors within a square. For this project we used oil pastels and watercolor while listening to classical music.
