These drawings were inspired by Paul Klee's Castle and Sun. Students used a ruler to create several large rectangles and squares for buildings on black paper. Students then used their rulers to make diagonal, horizontal and vertical lines inside of each building creating a variety of shapes. A sun or moon was added to the sky. Students then traced all pencil lines with white colored pencil and colored each shape a different, bright color.
