Our Own Take on Kandinsky

“Everything starts from a dot.”

Wassily Kandinsky

Kandinsky was one of the first artists to create completely abstract (non-representational) art. Due to his special ability to hear colours (called synaesthesia cognate) his pieces made no reference to the natural world. We were inspired by his piece Several Circles to create our own abstract piece.

Our classroom was very quiet while the students were creating these. Perhaps they could hear the music Kandinsky could see?
