Abstract Tissue Paper Collage

Students studied the art of Kandinsky and Mondrian, comparing the artists' works and the different way they used line, shape, and color in their abstract paintings. Students created their own collage inspired by Mondrian and Kandinsky, constructing a unified and balanced composition.

Students discussed how Mondrian used vertical and horizontal lines, a limited pallet of primary colors, and geometric shapes.  In contrast, Kandinsky used diagonal and swirling lines, multiple colors, and organic shapes.  Student can emulate one of these techniques or adapt both into their designs.
