Paul Klee (sounds like clay) was a Switzerland born artist who admired children's art. He was an artist, violinist, writer and a teacher. He loved to draw and paint things from nature and his cat was his favorite subject when he was younger.
Third grade observed the similarities and differences in Klee's work, particularly his paintings where fish were the subjects. They designed their own fish using organic lines and geometric shapes and placed them overtop a wax resist background. Warm and cool colors were reviewed and used to create these artworks too!
