Paul Klee

Paul Klee was one of the most interesting artists of the 20th century. He created more than 9,000 pieces of art that incorporated several different styles like Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism. He also loved music and color. Following in Klee’s eclectic style, this box is full of imagination and creative freedom!

Kids will start exploring color and abstract forms as they make their own scratch art. They’ll dive into Cubism while making a colorful cityscape reproduction and learning four printmaking techniques. They’ll practice using oil pastels, blending charcoal, and drawing with Klee’s technique. Creating an Expressionist forest fantasy diorama is the final project of this box.
