Alexander Calder Likes the Primary Colors Red, Yellow, and Blue


IAA Kindergartners have been very busy exploring the art of Alexander Calder. Visual Thinking Strategies, geometry and color have been the focus of their exploration. Working both in two-dimensions and three, students created paintings as well as stabiles. You should ask them to share their new knowledge with you. They have been remarkably curious and attentive and have so much to share about Alexander Calder’s work. Here are some examples from their classroom.
