Making Paul Klee inspired Castle and Sun pictures.

We found out about the artist Paul Klee and looked at his famous picture Castle and Sun.  We didn’t know what it was at first, but we looked carefully at the shapes and colours.  Using different sized rectangles, squares, triangles and circles to draw around, we were able to build our own Castle and Sun pictures.  It was important to draw carefully around the shapes, then we filled them in using oil-based pastels to complete our beautiful pictures.
