A Kandinsky Tree

A Rainy Day Monday Craft

For our tree we used a technique of collage, glue, cardboard and newsprint to created our bark.

Next we cut-out cardboard circles and painted them different colors.  After they dried we hot glued circles together.

We cut-out a moon and attached it to the top of our tree with a toothpick and some hotglue.

To complete the project we also glued a wood block to the back to stand it up.

This project is inspired by the work "Squares with concentric circles" of 1913, the Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky
