Mondrian art

Piet Mondrian grew up in Holland. after he finished his regular schooling, he studied to be an artist. after a visit to Paris in 1910 he stopped drawing real-life landscapes and portraits of people and turned to abstract images. As one of our favourite art sites suggested studying Mondrian helped us to "step outside the square"(please excuse poor pun)and see things in a different way. Thu we noticed that many of Mondrian's art work was not simply geometric shapes juxtapositioned in any random way but did actually represent what they described. We also learned from his art, the importance of the title of a piece of art.

our first art work was using crayon

some more work: this time with paper cut-outs.

our final pieces of work
