  • Kandinsky

    1. 1. We can use the language of geometry to describe the world around us. How can we describe and represent geometry? (form) How can geometric properties help us represent our understandings of the world? (connection) What are different ways we can represent the world through geometry? (perspective)
    2. 2. Wassily Kandinsky 1866-1944

    4. 4. Kandinsky was interested in color and shapes, even as a child. Beginning in his earlier, more realistic paintings, Kandinsky used color to show emotion rather than to make objects look real. As he grew as an artist, Kandinsky became more concerned with the power of color in describing what he was feeling. He wanted to use color to make his viewers feel emotion, too. Gradually, Kandinsky became more abstract. He began to paint objects as patches of color and he used a lot of geometric shapes instead of painting perfect details such as facial features or individual leaves on trees. Kandinsky thought that through the use of color and shape, we can all become artists. WE CAN SHOW OUR EMOTIONS THROUGH THESE COLORS AND SHAPES. WE DON’T NEED PERFECT AND REALISTIC PICTURES.
    5. 5. Task 1 -- Discussion Groups Analyze and present your thoughts on a piece of Kandinsky art. Create a “thoughts web” Guiding Questions: •What does the art work look like? •Describe the colors used? •What geometric figures are evident in the art work? •What kinds of lines are used in the art work? •Is symmetry evident in the art work? •Do you recognize regular and irregular 2D figures? •Can you use any other geometric language to describe this art work •How does Kandinsky show emotion in the art work? What emotions can you detect? Why do you think so?

    11. 11. Discussion How can color show emotion? What colors do you think can show different emotions? Emotion Possible Colors Happiness Sadness Anger Fear
    12. 12. Your Task 1. Use a draft sheet to show a variety of the geometric principles we have covered in class. Refer to our work with polygons, lines, triangles, angles, 3D objects. Use color with your shapes to convey emotion. You can choose to focus on one emotion and represent it in a variety of ways OR you can represent a variety of emotions. 2. Is your draft sheet OK for you? Have you used a variety of geometric principles? Have you used color to convey emotion? Share it with a classmate and discuss. Your classmate should SIGN the back of your draft after your discussion. 3. Your final copy will be on a piece of A4 card. 4. Written reflection (supplied later, but will include the geometric principles you included, the emotions you tried to convey and the way you tried to describe the world through geometry).
