Concentric Circle Painting

This project was aimed to help the second graders with their paintbrush control, watercolor technique, and rainbow order.   It is based on Kandinsky's "Squares with Concentric Circles".  I mounted the paintings on large graph paper and the students created borders by filling in the squares with oil pastel.  The angular geometric borders contrasted and complemented the organic concentric paintings really nicely.
