Artwork by grades 1, 2 & 3 at Kanata Montessori School

My grade 1, 2, 3 students at Kanata Montessori School learned about the colour wheel and its vocabulary. For the "cat" project, students focused on two principles of design (repetition and variety) and used complementary colours in their artwork.

Inspiration for colours to finish this small painting came from the garden this morning, gathering leaves and from my lovely Marie Claire Idées magazine November- December 2013 issue for the background.
