The Kindergarten students studied the artwork of German born artist
This artist liked to explore colors in what he called his
"push-pull" theory 
using WARM and COOL colors.
The painted shapes in Hofmann's paintings show how
cool colors seem to recede into the background
while warm colors work their way forward in a painting.

We began our Hans Hofmann studies by painting 9x11 papers a variety of warm and cool colors.
Those papers were then cut into random size rectangles
and arranged and glued onto individual papers filling them to the edges.

Care was taken in placing warm colors and cool colors together.

Once dried, each students work of art was place side by side
on the round wall in the Kindergarten wing...

to create one large masterpiece!
