Studying Paul Klee’s geometric paintings, Little Artists studied his famous painting castle before creating their own. The first step was to draw thier castle's with geometric shape templates of rectangles and triangles onto their canvas similar to those also found in the illustrations of the book, The Cat and the Bird by Geraldine Elschner and Peggy Nille.
