Our most recent artist was a Russian and the Father of abstract art--Wassily Kandinsky. For a musician such as me, it was exciting to hear about the connections between art and music that Kandinsky emphasized, as well as the meaning of different hues of color. Students had fun listening to music while looking at his art. We crafted our Kandinsky creations by rolling some dice for abstract shapes, watercoloring, and adding "textures" to the work. I may be partial, but I think our abstracts could rival Kandinsky himself, and would certainly make him proud.
