I wanted to do this project last year with a group of my kids after seeing it on this blog. This year I made sure to allow enough time to properly introduce Mondrian to my third and fourth graders. They are my most adventurous artists this year and take challenges head on. So when I suggested the Mondrian twist, they were ready to go. Between the classes I only had a couple repeat animals, the monkey and the owl. Otherwise they were all about being unique which is music to my ears!
I love their interpretations and variety in cube size and color patterns.
