Easy How to Draw a Paul Klee Cat Head and Klee Cat Head Coloring Page

Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Paul Klee Cat Head and a Klee Cat Head Coloring Page. His art has a very childlike quality to it, perfect for young students just learning how to draw.

This tutorial imitates the way Paul Klee made a cat in his famous “Cat and Bird” painting. The simple shapes are easy for even young students to put down on paper, and leave lots of room for creative interpretation.

Klee obviously used paint for his masterpiece, but crayons or oil pastels will do just fine too. The sample here was made with layering crayons, the darker orange on top of golden yellow. The darker colors on top of lighter ones generally work well and can end up looking as rich as pastels, if one takes the time to fill in all the shapes really well.

Paul Klee (1879-1940) was a Swiss-born German artist and one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Aside from being a very positive influence a teacher, father and husband, he was the first artist to call the drawings of children real creativity, years before the first books were written about this.
