Color Study, Paul Klee Style

Klee CompositePaul Klee (1879 – 1940) was an modern art master who fell in love with color after a visit to Tunisia. I love his “Ancient Harmony” painting that twinkles with light and dark patches of color. Students can follow his idea for a fun color study by choosing two groups (light/dark, warm/cool colors) and have one encircle the other. It’s fun to arrange the colors in a random sort of way, and actually try NOT to create any patterns. And yes, a grid template is available below.
