When I picked D up from the Kindergarten Β he led me to the art wall where their daily paintings are hung to dry. They made remakes of paintings by known artists displayed at different art museums. I was told by the pedagogue that the kids each took a postcard to copy.

D’s piece was Saffron by Mark Rothko. Rothko was a Russian-born American painter, classified as an abstract expressionist to which he does not agree.

I asked him why he chose this one and he said this one is easy to paint because the colors are only orange and yellow.
