This project is inspired by Swiss artist Paul Klee's (1879-1940) painting 'Senecio' (1922). My grade ones are learning about Paul Klee this term as their first introduction to a bit of art history.
We started by recreating this famous painting by drawing a Klee style face in pencil. (They traced a paper plate to get a decent circle).
Students then used a roller to apply some orange paint to their paper.
Once dry, the children used chalk pastels to add more colour and texture to their portraits and finally outlined their drawing with a black marker.
