Paul Klee Art Lesson

This art project is based on one of Paul Klee's most recognized paintings called Cat and Bird-

This is an easy cat a bird to model drawing for all ages.  We practiced drawing the picture on a scratch paper first then did our final drawing in pencil on watercolor paper. We went over the pencil lines with oil pastels-I let them choose which colors they wanted to use-but told them to use a variety of colors. Then we filled in the rest of the picture using chalk pastels similar to the colors Klee used in his work. This worked well for kids k-6th. Below are some of the finished pieces. I think they have the same soft feel of Klee's work.
