The Cheeky Monkeys children extended their knowledge and understanding of the three primary colours and learned about an artist named Piet Mondrian. They were shown some of Mondrian’s most famous works, such as Broadway Boogie Woogie, Trafalgar Square, New York City, and Composition with Red, Yellow, and Blue. They observed Mondrian’s works and listened to his favourite music genre (what inspired him many times), jazz to get into a ‘Mondrian-inspired’ mood. The children used black paper strips and glued them vertically and horizontally according to their inspirations and creativity. They used their measuring skills, creativity, and imagination, and created artwork using their feelings, rhythm, order, and balance. They filled some of the spaces with paint using the three primary colours, just like Mondrian.
