Year 4 has been investigating abstract artworks, particularly looking at the works of Paul Klee. During our art intensive, we focused on the history and aesthetic of abstract art, looking at geometric shapes, line work and colour mixing.
Researching Paul Klee and his works, students identified various abstract elements in his works that they then appropriated into their own artwork with their final piece drawing inspiration from Klee’s 1928 Castle and Sun. We have had lots of fun experimenting with different compositions and media from oil and soft pastels to acrylic paint and pen work. The year fours excelled during this unit with some outstanding creative artworks being resolved. Well done year four!
