Paul Klee Castle & Sun

My third grade students enjoyed learning about Paul Klee and his abstract style art. We learned about geometric shapes, looked at several Paul Klee paintings and started our own. We used rulers, made rectangles, closed the top with triangles and then made all kinds of shapes inside the castle. We used a little circle to trace the top. Students used crayons to color in the shapes and then watercolor in opposite colors to color over shapes. I think I will skip the watercolor step if I do this again. Lots of kids got too heavy on the color and almost ruined their picture.
