Today we learned about the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. We looked at his paintings and discussed his use of lines and primary colors.

Here are our Mondrian inspired pictures:

Who is your favorite artist?   

Do you like Mondrian's artwork?


  1. Dear Mrs. Levy's class,

    I loved the pictures you made based on the artist Mondrian. I can tell you all worked hard on them.

    My favorite artist is Michelangelo. My husband and I took a trip to Rome and I learned so much about him while I was there. We were fortunate to see his sculptures and paintings. Michelangelo loved sculpting and didn't even really like to paint, yet he painted some beautiful and very famous things, like a whole ceiling in a place called the Sistine Chapel! He had to lie on his back up on a big ladder to do it. Talk about hard work.....

    Thank you again for sharing your work.

  2. Dear Shannon,

    Thanks for the informative comment!

    I love Michelangelo. I have never been to the Sistine Chapel, but hope to go one day. I would never have imagined that he didn't like to paint, his paintings are so amazing. I wonder how long it took him to paint the Sistine Chapel?

    One of my favorite artist is Vincent Van Gogh. When I lived in the Netherlands I would take the train to Amsterdam to go to the Van Gogh Museum . Have you ever seen his paintings of the Sunflowers? We will be looking at those paintings this week!

    Keep blogging :-)

  3. I don't really have a favorite artist, but if I had to choose, I guess I would say Monet. I really like his use of oils and pastels. Mondrian's art is really modern, and I like his use of colors.

  4. Dear Nathalie,

    It is hard to choose when there are so many wonderful artists. I love Monet too. Have you ever seen his paintings of water lilies?

  5. Dear Mrs. Levy,

    I think I have, but I'm not sure which museum it was that I saw them.
