Friday art time

Every Friday we pick an artist to read a little about and then try to copy their art style. (It adds some nice variety to our week and lets me learn a bit more about art too.) Today we looked at art by Paul Klee. He’s one of those artists that when I first see his work I’m not that enchanted, but then I do enjoy learning about his techniques. This picture, though, I particularly enjoyed:

This is why I like to design a lot of my own assignments instead of using workbooks all the time. It’s just too fun!
