Paul Klee City

2nd and 1st graders at Chets Creek Elementary are creating cities just as Paul Klee created his. Our vocabulary words are:
  • Shape

  • Geometric Shape

  • Color

  • Value

  • Blue Print

  • Architect

First, we talk about who an architect is and what a blue print is used for. Then, we pass out rulers to create our geometric shape. I tell the students to image they are building with Lego Blocks. Once our cities is drawn, we color them in. 1st graders use markers and 2nd graders use oil pastels. These look beautiful once they are complete.
