Kandinsky – Art

Kandinsky believed that painting didn’t need a particular subject. He felt that he could express feelings and music through colours and shapes in his paintings. For example, he thought that yellow had the crisp sound of a brass trumpet and that certain colours placed together could harmonize like chords on a piano. The shapes he was most interested in were the circle, triangle, and the square. He thought the triangle would cause aggressive feelings, the square calm feelings, and the circle spiritual feelings.

Ms Miriam, KG 2.4, inspired her students to replace the circle with the shape of the heart for the occasion of St. Valentine’s (14th February). Here is a photo of the children’s art:
