Paul Klee Inspired Scratch Art

We started by looking at artist Paul Klee's Golden Fish. We talked about what the focal point of his painting was and how we knew that (in the center, bigger, brighter). We also looked at the details and textures in his painting. Students made their own scratch paper by coloring with oil pastels in diagonal lines. They then used the width of a ruler to measure a border and colored the inner rectangle with black oil pastel. They were then able to use a toothpick to scratch away at their paper to reveal the colors underneath. We used an ocean theme and had to include an obvious focal point.
