Our Art Vista lesson in third grade this month was to study Paul Klee. I didn't really like the project that we were supposed to do, but I couldn't come up with another option until the very last minute. I was surfing the web to learn more about his art and found this piece The Twittering Machine. I loved the title.
I decided that it would be fun to create our own fantastical machines in a similar style. They drew their machines with Sharpies then collaged tissue paper over it. The kids created amazing art! I love what they came up with. Here are just two examples.
