Students were introduced to the artist Paul Klee and his work with color,shapes, form and design.
Using basic shape patterns (squares, rectangles, circles and triangles) as well as rulers they were guided in creating a castle like structure. These drawings were done with color pencil and metallic color pencil on black paper.
It's a nice alternative to the October Haunted House and can
carry on throughout the year.
This will be the go to project throughout the year
perfect for those students who finish projects early.
I like this project because it allows a lot of personal creative freedom. Reinforces skills such as tracing and using a ruler to make straight lines and connects to art history.
I have seen several lessons like this on line and really combined ideas from numerous sites so in no way is this 100% my original lesson.
