A Little Paul Klee, Please

Spring session of art class started today. We’re back at a session of looking at the “masters”. Yes, I get to throw a bit of art history in there! This time we took a look at the work of Paul Klee. While his work is representational of a few different movements we focused on Expressionism. The subject matter for this week’s project was a bit open-ended…love how they turned out though.  ❤

The “Arts” have many benefits to kids and it’s sad when these subjects are limited or removed from school curriculum. But the arts can, and maybe should be a lifelong pursuit. At some point we may outgrow the classes, exams, etc. of our youth but we don’t out grow the benefit that can be reaped from the arts.

Turns out tough that something can be said for actually DOING IT. It doesn’t matter if you see yourself as creative. You don’t need to do it for anyone else but you. It doesn’t need to be a show — just an experience! Dive in and give it a try.
