Wassily Kandinsky Game
You will create a Kandinsky style watercolor by rolling the die and collecting the different parts required to put it together. The first two abstract shapes you’ll draw come from the first column (roll #1 and #2). The next two come from the second column. The next three rolls of the die will decide which lines you’ll add from the third column. In the fourth column, you’ll select two geometric shapes to include. And the last two geometric shapes come from the last column. Lastly, use marker to draw and watercolor paints to fill it in.
First, print out the game and picture directions back-to-back. Then give them dice and watch them have fun creating their own art project independently. Once completed, have students use the self-assessment rubrics to evaluate their artwork based on craftsmanship, creativity, following directions, work habits, project goals, and clean up. And then have them complete the “Big Ideas” sheet so they can connect the creation process to their learning.

Excited to use this! We are going over the elements of art and discussing the various lines. This will be great to do after the PowerPoint on Kandinsky!! – Julia D.
I used this as a center in Math in our Geometry unit, because we do an activity that finds Geometry concepts in Kandinsky’s art and create our own. This was so much fun and my kiddos wanted to keep going and create more masterpieces. – Dana P.
I had a paint night with my family, to try out the lesson before I painted with my 3rd grade class. So much fun! My daughter, also a teacher, suggested reading the book about Kandinsky, called “The Noisy Paintbox”, as a literature and music connection to the art lesson. – Karen D.
