Wassily Kandinsky Notebooking Study I’ve had this resource post in my drafts for a while. On one of our many trips to the library this summer, we found an awesome art book that helped spark our idea to look into history through the eyes of art for Raven’s 7th grade transcript. Since Wassily Kandinsky is one of her favorite artists of all time, she chose him for her first artist study of the year.
