Art Together Winter 2013: Line (29 pp PDF)
I’m so excited to have the second issue of Art Together: E-Zine ready to share. I’ve spent the fall researching and exploring the life and works of this issue’s Featured Artist, Piet Mondrian, and the element of LINE. To be honest, I had to tear myself away from reading about Mondrian and exploring his artwork, or I’d have never completed anything else in this issue. He’s one of my favorites, and I hope you enjoy learning more about him as well. When I was pondering the focus of this issue, at first I thought LINE couldn’t possibly generate enough ideas. Boy, was I wrong. It’s deceptively simple but oh-so-interesting. As always, I do the explorations right alongside my kids, and I hope you try them, too. We all approach them from where we are, and we all get something out of them, from the five-year-old on up to me.
