Le château et le soleil de Paul Klee par les Cp et Ce1

Paul Klee, a Swedish painter, was well known for using mainly geometric forms with large blocks of color. In the beginning his parents encouraged the development of his musical skills, though in his teen years he decided to focus on becoming an artist. He studied extensively and wrote about color theory. In class we were inspired by his work "Le château et le Soleil". We advanced our knowledge of color theory by defining cool and warm colors on the color wheel. The assignment was to create a variation of Paul Klee's castle using cool or warm palette. Rulers and compasses were used as tools to trace geometric forms.
