PHILLIPS ARTWORK INSPIRATION: Piet Mondrian’s Composition No.3 and Composition No. 9
Through this project, students connected to math concepts of symmetry and parts of a whole. Students compared Mondrian’s artworks, identified parts of a whole using circles, and expressed themselves in their final artworks, creating an image with meaning. Students have retained a considerable amount from the unit including information about Piet Mondrian’s paintings, Mondrian’s use of black line with primary colors, and the math concepts of dissecting a circle into equal parts (halves, thirds, and quarters).
