In the early 1900’s the term Neoplasticism, was coined by an artist named Piet Mondrian. Create a gallery of art samples on a world map showing other popular styles of art from different cultures, during this same time period.
Look at words used to define different styles of art during the same time period as Neoplasticism, and show visual examples to go along with the identification of each piece, for example Fauvism, Expressionism and Surrealism.
Neoplasticism influenced the science behind somearchitectural structures found in different parts of the world. Try constructing a small scale building and paint it using colors and designs with black lines and primary colors, similar to the art of Piet Mondrian.
