Taking a Line for a Walk with Paul Klee

“Drawing is taking a line for a walk”- Paul Klee. As a review of line, students in the 2nd grade learned all about Swiss artist Paul Klee & his life and abstract works. They viewed many of his famous artworks and learned that Klee was often inspired by child like art. They learned that his family was very artistic! His father was a music teacher and his mother was an artist. In Klee’s lifetime, he created almost 9,000 paintings! Students looked at “Burdened Children” by Paul Klee (1930- Pencil, crayon and pen and ink on paper on board). They noticed how he used continuous line and were inspired to take a line for a walk using paint. They listened to some of Klee’s favorite music while doing so and enjoyed the process.
