A Line is a Dot… More on ‘The Blue Rider’…

Paul Klee said “A line is a dot that went for a walk.”

This ink pen drawing on white paper shows his interest in Expressionism.

He also said that” One eye sees and the other feels.”

This Painting shows his interest is now also in colour and of course shape.

Paul Klee used many elements to express feelings, dreams and fantasy.

Look out for …

some more Paul Klee inspired Art.

SHAPE UP!

   Hello from Miss McCluskey

A Special Post for Maths Week Scotland   …

All around us we see, hear and feel structures & rhythms.

We use our senses to find shapes & patterns to help us to understand our world – A world full of Art & Mathematics…

For thousands of years Artists have used Mathematics in their work-

Elements of shape, pattern, form and more…

     

                                         …   PAUL KLEE   …

The Artist, Paul Klee, used geometric shapes of different sizes & colours to create many of his abstract and expressive paintings.

Paul Klee was interested in the shapes & patterns that he saw around him and he loved colour too!

He looked closely at buildings and he tried to paint his ideas about how what he saw made him feel.

We created our own work inspired by Paul Klee.

 

See if you can find all of the shapes in our ‘CityScapes’

Happy Maths Week!  🙂 🙂 🙂
