We'll re-create our own version of Klee's magnificent ''Fish Magic".

Children will create an individual piece of artwork fit to be hung in the National Art Gallery collection this will have framing potential! Using beautiful acrylic colours we will lead our little masters through the wonderful world of painting, guided in a live streamed class with professional artists on one of the most renowned artists.
About the artist
Paul Klee was a Swiss-born artist. Involved with and influenced by several different movements—including Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism—Klee excelled in a range of genres, including drawing, printmaking, and, most famously, painting. Similarly, he inventively employed unexpected materials to produce mixed-media works, from canvas and cardboard to foil and fabric.
“He started every picture with an abstract mark—a square, a triangle, a circle, a line or a dot—and then allowed that motif to evolve or grow, almost like a living organism,” explains art historian Richard Dorment.
While Klee had an anatomical approach to composition, the content of his work was inspired by an entirely different discipline: music.
Though on a promising path, Klee decided to forego a musical career and instead pursue art by the turn of the century—though music would remain an important muse for much of his career. In 1905, nearly a decade after changing career paths, he revealed: “More and more parallels between music and graphic art force themselves upon my consciousness.”
This enduring connection to his earliest craft manifests as paintings that directly reference music. In In the Style of Bach (1919), for example, Klee reimagines a musical score as an arrangement of graphic symbols like foliage, a crescent moon, and stars. In addition to deciphering the structural similarities between music and art, however, Klee discovered a more profound connection between the disciplines when he began to explore colour theory.
Inspired by the vibrancy of the Tunisia, he made his biggest artistic breakthrough: an appreciation for colour. “Colour has taken possession of me; no longer do I have to chase after it, I know that it has hold of me forever,” he said. “Colour and I are one. I am a painter.”
It is when Klee mixed his unique approach to colour with his musical background that he was able to establish a style that was entirely his own. Some of his works explores musical texture through tonal blocks, a piece that pairs complimentary colours as if they were music notes—directly allude to both elements. However, many of his most famous pieces—including Fish Magic (1925) demonstrate his harmonious approach to colour theory without specific references, proving his ability to “improvise freely on the keyboard of colours.”
Likened to Leonardo’s A Treatise on Painting and described by famed art historian Herbert Read as “the most complete presentation of the principles of design ever made by a modern artist,” The Paul Klee Notebooks remain a crucial resource for contemporary creatives—in the fine arts and beyond.
