Kandinsky circles painting supplies:

  • Kandinsky circles template
  • Watercolour or craft paper - white
  • Watercolour paints - desired bold colours
  • Paintbrush

How to make Kandinsky inspired circle art:

STEP 1: Gather your supplies

Before you get started, gather up all your supplies! This makes things so much easier. When choosing your watercolours, try to choose bold and bright colours as that is what is traditionally used. If you haven't grabbed the template, go ahead and scroll down below to download it.

STEP 2: Prepare template

Print out your template to use for your painting. Typical white computer paper or cardstock works fine, but if you have white watercolour paper that will fit into your printer, that's even better!

STEP 3: Start painting

Now it's time to invite your child to paint! Start by choosing a colour for the outside circle and paint on the line.

Once you've done that, grab another colour and paint another circle inside the first. Keep going until you've completed the inside of the circle, choosing new colours each time. Finish up by painting in the outside square area with a different colour.

If painting 6 circles is too much, how about painting your Kandinsky circles as a group project? Simply paint one circle each and then glue the circles down next to one another on a piece of cardstock. The completed circle painting will be really effective, especially if created with a large group of children.
