Paul Klee’s “Highway and Byways” was the inspiration for these pieces created by our Fourth Grade artists.
This project also focused on our school-wide goal of improving student math number sense with a deeper understanding of fractions. Fourth grade students used their knowledge of fractions to divide their paper space into halves, thirds, and fourths. They chose a warm or cool color palette and used watercolor to fill in their spaces. The finished pieces are a reflection of their use of color, shape, line, and of course…fractions!
