Summer Learning Journey - Day 15 Activity 1

For this activity I had to imagine I walked into the local gallery, the first piece of artwork that you see is a painting by Wassily Kandinsky called ‘Swinging.’ While you are looking at it, a staff member at the gallery comes up to you and asks you for your opinion of the painting. On my blog I had to tell what I think of this painting and if I could buy it and give it to someone, who would I choose.
My Opinion : I think that this work of art is really creative and I like how the artist used different shapes to draw something. If I could buy this painting and give it someone I would give it to my sister because she like paintings.


  1. Hi AJ, I like your opinions on the painting : Swinging by Wassily Kandinsky. It's got a sort og rubiks cube shape and some trafic lights that have the sun an eclipse and so much more there are so many things put into it. Your sister would probably enjoy the painting. Keep up the great work AJ.

  2. Hello AJ
    That's really nice on how you would give that to your sister. Keep up the superb work!

  3. Hi AJ,

    It's nice to read that you would gift this painting to your sister. Does she have anything else like it? It's quite an unusual piece but I also like the bold colours and shapes. It's considered to be an example of 'abstract' art. I am a fan of some abstract artworks but others are just a bit too 'out there' for me!

    If I had to choose my favourite genre or style of art, I would probably choose photography. I am a really big fan of black and white portraits. Do you have a favourite genre (style or type) or artwork?

    Enjoy the last few days of summer with your family and friends, AJ! I hope that they go really well :)
