Computing L.O.: To create digital art

Over the next 4 weeks, you are going to use your computing skills to create digital art using different artists as inspiration.  This week's artist is Mondrian, a particular favourite of mine. I'm sure some of you will be able to guess why when you see some of his work!

I have attached your instructions below. Enjoy, be creative and have fun!


At a time where we all find ourselves indoors for the most of the day, we should bear in mind how important daily exercise is for our health and wellbeing, particularly our mental health. If you are able to, take your device somewhere with plenty of space (even the garden on a nice sunny day) or clear some space in front of your computer and follow along with Joe Wicks for a 30 minute workout. I will definitely be doing the same!
