Piet Mondrian's Suncatcher
Today, I want to introduce Piet Mondrian's Compositions. These are his original works.
His works have inspired many artists, designers, and architects world around and their reinterpretations with great scales and innovative ideas are just amazing!
Have some time with the children to see the original paintings and the applied works done by other artists and discuss what they see and find in terms of space, colors, scale, and materials and more.
And then, let's make our own reinterpretation of Mondrian by creating a beautiful sun catcher.
- Frame in any size with acrylic or glass surface
- Black tape
- Blue, yellow, red and white paint
- Paint brushes

1. Separate the parts from the frame and use the clear surface to use as a canvas.
Tailor the width and length of the tape by cutting it.
2. Have children paint each rectangle with different colors.
**Ask them how Mondrian used the colors (if he mixed the primary colors or used original colors for each rectangle). Suggest them to use the primary colors without mixing them this time to make his/her work look like Mondrian's composition.
3. Put the frame together to look like this!
