This Paul Klee drawing project guides students to make a continuous line drawing that resembles one of his famous paintings, “Arrival of the Bridegroom”.
Make an easy Paul Klee drawing project by following lots of “up” and “down” and “over” directions in my PDF tutorial, which you can download below.
It’s a fun process that asks students to make an abstract drawing of a person out of one straight line, and then adding arms and legs to finish. Guaranteed abstract (and most certainly creative) results!
