FREE Mini-Scheme: Wassily Kandinsky

£0.00
SKU A56CS40300
Mini-Schemes Key Stage 2 Art Year 5 Year 6

Learn all about the life and work of Kandinsky, who spent his career developing a 'language' for expressing sounds, ideas and feelings through his paintings. Challenge children to sketch and develop their ideas for an abstract work of art of their own by simplifying drawings of people, animals, places and objects. Encourage them to develop and improve their ideas through labelling, annotating and adapting their sketches.

Each of the three included lessons includes a choice of activities, so you can teach them in sequence, or as standalone lessons!

No special resources or art materials are required, and each lesson includes a range of helpful printable worksheets and resources – allowing you to pick up the plans and teach straight away using whatever paints or pencils you have available!

#Lesson1Whatisabstractart

Find out all about the life and works of Kandinsky, including the artists who influenced him and the ways in which his style changed over time. This Kandinsky abstract art KS2 lesson will challenge your children to consider what 'abstract' means, the effects of abstract art on the viewer, and how they might begin to create their own abstract works of art.

Depending on whether you choose to teach all three Kandinsky lessons in sequence or as standalone lessons, there's a choice of differentiated activities, with printable resources for each included!

#Lesson2Expressingsoundsandfeelings

Find out all about Kandinsky's 'language' for art – a way of expressing sounds, feelings and ideas through his use of colours, shapes and lines on the canvas. Children will consider the ways in which they may associate colours and shapes with sounds, in particular, then develop ideas on paper or in sketchbooks for their own music-inspired, abstract work of art.

This Kandinsky colour and shape lesson comes with a downloadable plan, slide show presentation and challenge cards.

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas

#Lesson3Creatingabstractworksofart

Build on children's understanding of Kandinsky's theories regarding colour, then challenge them to develop and improve their ideas for an abstract work of art. After that, it's up to you! Either paint or use art software to produce a final, abstract work of art inspired by a piece of music, or describing a situation of children's own choosing.

This free Wassily Kandinsky lesson for kids contains a plan, a slide show presentation, challenge cards and photo cards.
