We've been studying the work of color theorist and abstract painter Josef Albers in our pre-K art studio.
His "Homage to the Square" paintings are the sh*t.
As a class we looked at a few, and identified favorite color combinations.
How does the same color look when paired with different colors?
(One girl picked this as her favorite and described it as
"a painting of butter on the kind of cheese that melts".)
Anyway, we did a little "homaging" ourselves. Students used their emerging tracing skills to make squares, and choosing color pairings that appealed to them.
