Paul Klee is one of my favourite artists. His whimsical, dreamy, childlike images are a delight. I love the way he combines maths and art, shapes, and numbers, symbols and letters.




I did this activity and the students were bringing in artwork for several days to add to our display.



I made a powerpoint(download it here) intro including some background on PAUL KLEE and an outline of the activity.
