Abstract Art inspired by the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian

 

You don’t have to make your paintings look realistic if you don’t want to. Many famous artists painted what they saw using flat patterns, bright colors, and interesting shapes. This is called abstract art.

The children’s paintings were inspired by the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, who changed the way many people think about art. His paintings consisted only of rectangles and the colors red, blue and yellow (over white backgrounds) outlined by black vertical and horizontal lines.
