Kandinsky for Kids

Considered a key figure in modern art history, Wassily Kandinsky was a Russian artist known to be one of the founders of modern Abstract Art. 

He was more interested in showing emotion through colour rather than making his artworks resemble objects or landscapes, as it was the norm at the time. 

This made his art something so unique that, at first, wasn't well-received everywhere, particularly in his home country. But Kandinsky's legacy and impact keeps inspiring and challenging how we perceive art even today. 

One of Kandinsky's most recognisable pieces of artwork 'Squares with Concentric Circles' was what inspired the fun Kandinsky Christmas tree art for kids that we are sharing today. 

Kandinsky's circle art was actually more of a colour study than a complete piece of artwork. Just as Kandinsky did we had fun trying out different colour combinations as we coloured the circles for this Christmas tree craft.

Kandinsky Tree - Directions:

STEP 1:  Print Kandinsky tree template.

Set up everything you'll be working with and print out our Kandinsky Christmas tree template (go below and grab it for free!) I would recommend printing onto thick white paper or thin cardstock. 

You can change the size of the Christmas tree outline or the circles by playing around with your printer settings.

STEP 2: Colour time!

Now it is time to add some colour to your Kandinsky-inspired craft! Using markers, watercolour paint or even pastels colour the circles. Use bold and contrasting colours. You may want to add colour to the Christmas tree, or alternatively you could keep it white as if it is covered in snow! (scroll down to see the different options in the images below)

STEP 3: Glue circles to tree

Once the circles and Christmas tree shapes are coloured leave them to dry if needed and then cut out the circles. Use the circles to decorate the Christmas tree, glueing each circle in place on the tree.
