This week we are going over analogous color schemes. As part of this lesson, I like to incorporate a breif lesson on an artist so we can try their style, but use our designated color scheme. We recreated a piece by Paul Klee titled, “The Man of the Future.” This continuous line drawing is made by following the “up” and “down” and “over."
Once the figure is drawn, each quadrant or organic shape that is made will be colored in using analogous colors. The students were able to choose up to 4 colors and work with them in a interestering manor. I encouraged them to add elements to their people to make it more interestering.
A little about Paul Klee (clay)...
Paul Klee was a painter born in Switzerland in 1879. His highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included expressionism, cubism, and surrealism.
Here is where I found the step by step Paul Klee drawing for my students.
