Paul Klee – Pedagogical Sketchbook

“Pedagogical Sketchbook is the abstract of Paul Klee’s inductive vision. An intuitive art investigation of dynamic principles in visual arts. Klee takes his students on an ‘adventure in seeing’ and guiding them step-by-step through a challenging conceptual framework. Objects are rendered in a complex relation to physical and intellectual space concepts. It is an exercise in modern art thinking. The four main approaches in this slim volume are: Line and Structure; Dimension and Balance; Gravitational Curve and Kinetic and Chromatic Energy.” This volume formed a primer for his students at the Bauhaus.
