Children will start by gathering samples of Kandinsky’s paintings and learning that he was especially interested in colour, even as a child. Beginning with his earlier, more realistic paintings, Kandinsky used colour to show emotion rather than to make objects look real. As he grew as an artist, he became more concerned with the power of colour in describing what he was feeling. He wanted to use colour to make his viewers feel emotions too. Painting activities will be based on Kandinsky’s Squares and Concentric.
The tutor is the Russian trained art teacher Svetlana Sinitsyna, a Fine Art graduate of St Petersburg University. Children of all school ages welcome.
