    What Does Colour Sound Like?


    Please read through instructions before you begin:

    • Use a 8 1/2" x 11" white piece of paper (any paper will do).
    • Hold the paper vertically.
    • Cut away 2 1/2" off the 11" side (Now the paper is 8 1/2" X 8 1/2")
    • Fold the paper in half.
    • Hold the paper horizontally.
    • Fold the paper in half.
    • The paper is now divided into four equal squares.
    • In the center of each square draw a dot or oval.
    • Each dot or oval should be a different color.
    • Around each dot or oval draw a close circle touching the dot, use a different color.
    • Around each circle draw a close circle touching circle, use a different color.
    • Keep drawing circles around circles till the outer circle touches the edge of each square.
    • Fill in the background with a different color.
    • You may use any colors you would like.
    • You may need to repeat colors.
    • Do not have same color circles touching each other.
    • You may color your "Kandinsky Circles" in crayon, magic markers, water color, tempera paint, or oil pastels (whatever supplies you have at home).
    • Use bright colors to color in the background. 
    • I can't wait to see the "Kandinsky Circles" you create!


    • Remember: once you are finished with your artwork take a picture of it and email it to rherzog@wtps.org. Include the students name and teacher's name and grade. I will post it on Bells Online Art Gallery.
