Art Lesson #6 The Art of Kandinsky and the use of Lines

He was a Russian painter, printmaker and art theorist. One of the most famous 20th-century artists, he is credited with painting the first modern abstract works.–from Wikipedia
(noun) – A line is a basic element of art, referring to a continuous mark, made on a surface, by a moving point. A line is long relative to its width. It can define a space, create an outline or pattern, imply movement or texture and allude to mass or volume. Absolutely essential in creating art, the line.
The Artist Toolkit is a wonderful “Art” site to go to for help with your Art Lessons. Take a moment to check out these two links on “Lines”, they will and a great element to your Art Lessons. If you find time check out as much of their site as you can.

We started by watching a little slide show movie I put together of the work of Kandinsky. We then checked out the Artist Toolkit on the subject of Lines and last we went to work creating are own art. I did take a moment to emphasize color and shapes also since these elements were greatly used and emphasized by Kandinsky. They created many more works of Art but I just ask them to pick one to share with you here on the blog. It was another enjoyable Art lesson!
