Hello, my name is Ben and I am going to tell you what we have been doing in art…painting! Our last lesson was based on paintings by Kenneth Noland. He was a famous painter that lived from 1924 until 2010. Kenneth Noland was called a “hard edge” painter because when he painted concentric shapes he made the edges look as if a printer had printed them.
We have also been studying tertiary colors. Tertiary colors are primary and secondary colors mixed together. The tertiary colors are blue-green, blue-violet, red-violet, yellow-orange, yellow-green, and red-orange.
We hae also been making paintings based on Kenneth Noland’s. The paintings we have been making have at least 3 tertiary colors. They also have concentric shapes (a shape that is inside of a shape that is inside of another one, etc.)
