What Paul Made: A Story About a Young Paul Klee

What Paul Made: A Story About a Young Paul Klee

By Valerie Downs

A story inspired by artist Paul Klee’s quote, “A line is a dot that went for a walk”. 

What Paul Made is a story about friendship, creativity and the innocence of a child’s imagination. Readers will follow a young Paul on a visual journey turning a simple stroll into an adventure full of color, nature, curiosity and joy. Together with his dot, Paul returns home to discover his imagination created something wonderful. The story ends with an informative artist bio and a creative prompt bringing readers full circle into their own dot inspired creation! Famous for merging “inner” and “outer” worlds into his compositions, artist Paul Klee’s artistic life began with a childhood filled of music, nature and poetry. As a young man, Klee decided that visual expression was the creative path that interested him the most. It was then that Paul began a lifelong adventure of creating and developing his own unique vision through artistic study, practice and experimentation. Throughout his career, Klee remained dedicated to color theory practice while he experimented with materials and Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, Abstract Expressionist, Cubist and Futurist concepts. Paul Klee eventually became an instructor at the Bauhaus and Düsseldorf Academy and was a member of the artistic movement called the Die Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider).
