Kandinsky circles

Ruma Toru enjoying painting today. We learnt that art does not have to be perfect, it is how you interpret it. We are designing our own Kandinsky circle artwork. Kandinsky was a Russian artist and he believed that colour and shape alone could be art. We are learning that art does not have to be perfect, it is how you interpret it.

Yesterday the Trekkers went on a trip into the centre of the city to look at the old buildings, new buildings, street art and the empty spaces. We took lots of photos and used our map skills to navigate our way around the streets.
