Visual Art & Geometry

This browser cannot play the embedded video file.


By analyzing the work of Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky, students developed math skills of identifying, classifying, and describing the shape, size, color, and location of geometric figures. They also developed visual art skills of identifying line, color, and shape and spatial relationships. All the knowledge and skills gained through the analysis of Kandinsky’s art were then applied as students created class mural and individual collages.
