Circles like Kandinsky

We set up a provocation that invited the children to make circles like Kandinsky. 
We have been exploring different mediums and for this activity we used oil pastels. We asked what the oil pastels felt like, "They feel a little like crayons", " they are smooth" , " you can smear them!" 

Some children chose to make their own circles while others chose panels in the painting to recreate. We discovered that some of them are patterns! 

All of our circles look so great together we decided to put them up on the wall in our red room.
