In The Style of Piet Mondrian

Teaching students about the primary colors is a great way to introduce them to Dutch artist Piet MondriaN (1872 -1944). To learn more about Mr. Mondrian, click here.

I've used this art project for students in kindergarten through college. It doesn't matter what age they are, the students automatically take a liking to this project.

Of course, students always put their own spin on things. And that's the beauty of art. The artwork above shows one of my students who titled her piece Give a Hand to Piet Mondrian. Now there's a creative thinker.

The piece of artwork above is a miniature Mondrian. The student titled this piece Mini Mondrian.

The artwork above incorporates a little bit of patriotism into the picture. Notice the red, white, and blue background.

In the style of Piet Mondrian, Yves Saint Laurent created his "Mondrian" day dress in 1965. See more about that here. So, what have you seen lately in the style of Piet Mondrian?
