CEDAR CITY – As part of their visual arts curriculum, Iron Springs Elementary students in Cedar City studied Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky, and re-created some of his style of art, which they donated to the pediatric wing of Valley View Medical Center.

“As students were shown different compositions created by Kandinsky they were told to carefully study and examine closely his use of vibrant color, asymmetry, diagonal lines, and unique shapes,” Iron Springs Elementary School Principal Bylynda Murray said. “They were then shown Kandinsky’s painting called ‘Squares with Concentric Circles.’ They learned that each square could potentially be an individual painting and further, when those squares were put together, it could create yet another extraordinary work of art.

“So after they studied the artist, our students got to be involved in a school-wide art project, and created a collaborative water color art mural based on Wassily Kandinsky’s work,” Murray added. “Each student created a ‘mini-painting’ using watercolors. These student paintings were then combined into a larger collaborative mural that was displayed in the front hall of the school. Selected paintings were used to create a wall hanging to donate to Valley View, and our students were so proud to be able to be a part of this.”
