Create some stunning paintings to investigate colour, form and line with a little inspiration from abstract artist Paul Klee! A great art project for children with beautiful, open-ended results.
I love looking at abstract and modern artists with kids because there is no subject matter or end-product to aim for, therefore they feel less inhibited and more excited to have a go to create their own. This process has really captured Cakie’s interest and it is now reflecting in her drawings too, where she has started drawing intersecting lines across the paper and colouring the sections that she creates with bright colours!
We are framing these in our new kids art gallery space in the kitchen, and giving some away to family members too as there are so many wonderful finished pieces!
