Inspired by Paul Klee's Big Head

“Art does not reproduce what we see; rather, it makes us see.”  Paul Klee

The fourth graders started with a big round head, divided it up and used craypas to make patterns in warm or cool color combinations transposing facial features for vibrant results.

Paul Klee was a Swiss artist of German Nationality (1879-1940). His highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism. His works reflect his humor and sometimes child-like perspective, his personal moods and beliefs. He was a highly trained musician and instructed his students in a series of musical operations for pattern development using rotation, inversion, mirroring or transposition of colors.
