Acera students - Color Study: Squares with Concentric Circles project

During one of my art lesson visits to Acera, I introduced the students to the abstract works and color theory of Russian painter and art theorist Wassily Kandinsky.  

Colour is the key. The eye is the hammer. The soul is the piano with its many chords. The artist is the hand that, by touching this or that key, sets the soul vibrating automatically. ”
- Wassily Kandinsky

Using canvas board and ©Sharpie Brush Tip markers, each artist created 6 squares and concentric circles. They experimented with the effects of juxtaposing different colors. Together the boards create a stunning mosaic to be hung in Acera's new school this fall.
