Paul Klee's Yellow Birds

Paul Klee is a great artist that kids can relate to! His simple shapes, bright colors, and playful designs make for great discussion. This is a project my first graders worked on in art class. We began by looking at Paul Klee's art. We used pencil to draw many shapes for leaves and plants. We used oil pastel to outline and add pattern to our plants. Finally, we painted with liquid watercolors. On the second day, students cut and assembled their pictures. They added simple yellow birds to finish their designs.
