WALT create art in the style of Mondrian


This year, we have been looking at abstract art. We have learned about Kandinsky, explored warm and cool colours and mixed colours to create secondary colours. Today we are going to look at another abstract artist called Piet Mondrian.


You can find out more about Mondrian here.

We are going to recreate Mondrian's 'Composition with Red, Yellow and Blue'. 


Have a think about the following questions:

  • What colours did Mondrian use? 
  • What are these colours called?
  • What shapes can you see?
  • What is abstract art?
  • What was he famous for?




Your task is to create art in the style of Mondrian. You can choose how you do this depending on what media you have at home. Be as creative as you like - you do not have to copy the original!


You could use:

  • Purple Mash 2Do (choose the lines option)
  • Paint or paint printing
  • Pencils
  • Pastels
  • Strips of paper


Watch Miss Hemmings have a go at home on her whiteboard (she thinks her cat enjoyed it!) Remember, Mondrian did not use a ruler so Miss Hemmings created this freehand.

Challenge: to demonstrate your knowledge, write a sentence to describe what you have learned about Mondrian. You can discuss the colour choice, the style or a fact about his life.
