  1. 1. When the artist does not intend for it to look like anything in particular.
  2. 2. Notice how his paintings don’t look like something. They are just squares and rectangles that are only colored Red, Blue, and Yellow. Why do you think he only used red, yellow and blue?
  3. 3. RED YELLOW BLUE Mondrian used only the primary colors because he felt that they created the strongest and purest contrasts. What is contrast?
  4. 4. Contrast is a principle of design that refers to the arrangement of opposite elements. This is so the artist can create visual interest and drama. What are some opposites in art? Light colors Large shapes Small shapes Dark colors Smooth texture Rough texture
  5. 5. Use your ruler to draw many vertical and horizontal lines. Similar to Mondrian, color in the squares using red, yellow, blue and black. Remember that many of his squares remained white. Use a ruler and sharpie to bold up your straight lines. Tape your drawing to the large paper and it will become part of the class collage!
