Paul Klee Inspired Art
Students observed several of Paul Klee's art that
use geometric shapes and often a grid. The painting
The Gray of Night, as seen below, was the specific
inspiration for this art piece. Here Klee uses the grid
and a poem that he wrote.
Students were required to find a meaningful quote,
paint with tempera paint using warm, cool or analogous
color, have smooth, even surfaces and use gradations.
Before rendering the painting students created a small,
color pencil version of their idea.
