Hi, JJ.That sounds neat. I would love to hear more about how you incorporate movement into your artist study. Sounds really fun! Thanks for writing!

We developed an integrated arts program last year and are just beginning year 2. I love to see it in practice somewhere else. We do a music, movement and art integration each month. The kids LOVE it!


do you think it would be possible for you to post the rest of the artists you are planning on using? i definitely want to use this idea in our classroom, but don't know much about artists myself.


If you would like, you can link this up at Artists and Art http://theadventuresofbear.blogspot.com/2010/09/artists-and-art-week-1-wassily-kandisky.html

We study/look at an artist every week (though some weeks the artist is the same) and do a response art work. I will keep your post in mind when we look at Klee.


How often do you plan to introduce a new artist?


That looks fantastic - I've been looking for artists to study in our kindergarten class. We're doing Piet Mondrian right now, but I think Klee will be our October artist. Thanks for the idea! Do you know any other artists that you plan on studying yet??


Thanks, Kristin. Your school sounds like a neat place!

I loved this post! I teach at a Montessori school and my classroom is called the Klee Room, after Paul Klee. We do a Klee study every year, and have done many artworks based on his work. This looks like a really fun one to try! Thanks for sharing your amazing work with the rest of us, you always are an inspiration!


If you want to extend this further we used the shapes from the geometric cabinet to make our own versions of this work.
