How to Draw like Paul Klee

Klee drawing projectI made this “How to Draw like Paul Klee” tutorial to guide students in a continuous line drawing that would look a lot like Klee’s famous painting.

1. For students in kinder through 2nd grade, I would consider directing the drawing with them one a board. Older students would probably be fine by following my sheet on their own.

3. Students color in all the closed shapes with colored pencils.
