Inspired by Paul Klee's "Castle and Sun"

First and second grade artists looked at "Castle and Sun" by Swiss artist Paul Klee.  Before we learned the title of this painting, we talked about what we saw- cities, villages, crayons, moon, houses, and of course a castle.  
This painting is made up of geometric shapes.  These are shapes that follow rules.  The other type of shapes are called organic shapes.  These are shapes that don't follow rules.
We used cut paper geometric shapes to build our castles or villages. We imagined that the paper shapes were building blocks and figured out how to fill the page and add details. The final step was to outline and add detail in black or white.
