Paul Klee Copycat

This year for art I am using a series called Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists, in particular, right now we are looking at the work of Paul Klee. Paul Klee was a great musician and a great artist. His work is varied from abstract to more traditional. Using this book, I had the children copy one of Paul Klee's paintings, Twittering Machine, pictured below.



Paul Klee's Twittering Machine

First, the children used crayon to draw their own twittering machine, based off of Klee's painting. Then, they wet an entire piece of paper with a paint brush. Next, they used cool colors for the background and warm colors to fill in the smaller spaces on their twittering machines.



Little Bean's Twittering Machine

This was a really enjoyable project for them both. Kind of new and different; they were really pleased with the results.
