How to make Kandinsky shape art for kids



STEP 1: Collect your supplies


Before you get started, collect all your supplies and lay them out so they're easy to find. We used paint sticks for our shape art, but you can use paints if you'd like or even markers or crayons. Print out several Kandinsky paintings to reference, if desired.


STEP 2: Prepare workspace


Roll out a large roll of paper to prepare your work area. If using paint, set your child up with a few selections on a palette or paper plate. We used paint sticks as they are so easy for toddlers to use and they make very little mess, which is always a bonus!

STEP 3: Create your shapes


Now it's time to create your shapes! Using a Kandinsky painting as reference, start drawing out different shapes on your paper using coloured markers or invite your child to do so, depending on their age and skill level.

For younger children still learning their shapes, you may want to stick to shapes they will recognize such as circles, triangles, and squares.

Once the shapes have been drawn on the paper, invite your child to colour them in using paint sticks or the paint you've prepared for them. See if there's any other shapes they want to add and colour in!
