**Visual Artist**

Visual art is any art you can see—like photos, paintings, movies, and sculpture. You see the work of visual artists every day. All the posters, books, and photos you see are designed or made by visual artists!

Did you know that the world’s oldest known works of art, cave paintings found in France, were made by visual artists who lived over 20,000 years ago?

The painting above was painted by a Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. Mondrian often painted differently-sized vertical and horizontal rectangles colored red, yellow, blue, white, and black. His paintings continue to inspire designs in furniture, lamps, fabrics, clothing, dinnerware, and more. There is even a map of the world painted with just Mondrian rectangles.

**STEM Task:**

Here is a puzzle inspired by Mondrian. Draw a square on grid paper that measures 10 units on each side. Can you divide the square into rectangles that each have a different size and shape? Color your rectangles red, blue, yellow, and black.

**Learning Mindset Strategic Help-Seeking Identifies Sources of Help**

We all use tools to help ourselves. A toothbrush is a tool to keep your teeth clean. What tools do you use to get to school? Do you walk or ride a bicycle? Or does someone drive you in a car or a bus? You also use tools for learning. The grid paper, pencil, and crayons or markers you used to design the puzzle inspired by Mondrian are also tools. Using the proper tools helps you work more efficiently.
