Paul Klee

3rd Grade, Mrs. Whitley – February 7, 2013

Project: The students started by drawing a self portrait with geometric shapes and exaggerated expressions. They hid meaningful letters, numbers and symbols within their drawings in the style of Klee. They then traced over their pencil drawings and covered the entire drawing with wet tissue paper squares. The paper squares were then removed leaving shapes to create a ‘cubist’ feel. While they created their art they listened to music to draw inspiration, just as Paul Klee did when he created his masterpieces.

Paper Mache: French for “chewed paper” is also known as composite material consisting of paper pieces or pulp, sometimes reinforced with textiles, bound with an adhesive, such as glue, starch, or wallpaper paste.

Project: Create a paper mache jack o’lantern to celebrate Halloween. The students used crumpled newspapers to make a pumpkin shape, then used a mixture of water & glue applied to the pumpkins to attach layers of orange napkins. They then attached black construction paper shapes to create faces, and green pipe cleaners for the stems.
