The Cheeky Monkeys made Senecio-inspired portraits using cool and warm colours in their visual arts lessons. First, the children learned some interesting facts about Paul Klee, such as how he became an artist and how he found his style which was influenced by children’s art, cubism, and painting on marks applied on paper using pale colours. Then, the children observed Paul Klee’s most famous artwork, such as Senecio, Castle and Sun, and The One Who Understands, and talked about them in great detail. Then, the children challenged themselves and drew and painted Senecio-inspired portraits, one with warm, and one with cool colours only to the best of their abilities.
