Paul Klee Cool Cats
This was a quick one-dayer that i saw somewhere on Pinterest. We watched a quick video about Paul Klee and noticed that he likes to break up figures into squares.
We drew our cats using black crayons so that it would resist our paint later on in the project. We talked about the difference between warm and cool colors. Warm colors reminded us of fire while cool colors reminded us of things like water and ice. Students used watercolors to paint their cat either cool colors with a warm background or a warm cat with a cool background. This was also a good project to practice our good brush use. I couldn't help but laugh at hearing kinders whispering "ballerinas dance on their toes, not their bootys" (this is a little saying I got from Cassie Stephens to help the kids remember how to use the brush right).
I'd say this project was a pretty cooooool one. Get it?
