I just did a unit on Paul Klee. We did pastels to learn about the "glowing"
quality in his work. We talked about gender roles, (he was a house husband
who raised their children while his wife taught music.) Since he often
worked on his kitchen table, a lot of his work is small in size. We did
ceramic 6" by 6" pottery tiles, (painting or drawing) and I passed pout 6 by
6 graph paper and we used q-tips and different values of blue and green to
do a landscape. They might sound difficult to do but they were really loose
and expressive. If fine motor skills are a challenge, you could blow up the
grid to an inch and use cosmetic sponges to paint. The kids really liked
this unit. We also read the Mike Venizia (sp?) book and I found a piece of
8 by 8 marble tile that we looked at and found funny faces, etc. in. Like
looking at clouds. Hope this helps,
