Kadinsky Inspired Fall Art Project for Kids

Instead of using concentric circles, this kids’ art activity incorporates fall leaves. Not real leaves, but a few leaf shapes that your child will create.

 

This art exploration doesn’t just cover crafting. It also includes math, science and fine motor skill-building. Your child will:

  • Learn about shapes
  • Create patterns
  • Compare sizes
  • Understand the part-to-whole relationship
  • Problem-solve
  • Connect to this lesson the fall season, weather and plants (leaves). Take a look outside (or go on a nature walk) and talk about what your child sees. Discuss the fall colors and the shapes of the leaves as they fall from the trees.
  • Fine motor abilities – improve dexterity and eye-hand coordination though cutting and painting.

Before beginning the actual art-making, take a look at Kandinsky’s concentric circles. Kandinsky created a variety of art during his life-time. This includes woodcuts, landscapes, portraits and

abstract shape-types of art.Ask your child to tell you what she sees when she looks at the circles. Use open-ended questions such as, “What’s going on in this painting?” or, “Why do you think the artist painted this way?”

Here is a great book for kids on Kadinsky and some Kadinsky stickers to enhance your unit:

Now it’s your child’s turn to create her own artwork! You’ll need:

  • card stock paper (white and fall colors)
  • scissors
  • tempera paint (fall colors)
  • paint brush
  • clear-drying school glue

Pour the paint onto a palette. Or, use wax paper as an inexpensive alternative. Choose fall colors, such as red, yellow, orange and brown.
using fall colors paint squares on your card stock or canvas
Paint a piece of white card stock paper, creating squares. Your child should fill the entire piece of paper with paint. Avoid sizing the squares too small. It will become a challenge for your child to fit
the leaves into the squares later on.
cut out leaves in fall colors for your fall art project

 

Cut leaves from the paper. Your child can create oval shapes in different sizes.
glue fall leaves onto painted canvas
Glue a leaf down onto each square.

Paint another leaf onto each paper leaf. Your child can pick other colors, to give the artwork some contrast.

Now glue another smaller leaf on top of the leaf making concentric leaves. Your child can stop there or she can keep going. She can add as many leaves (as they get progressively smaller in size) as she can fit on the paper!
