Y2KS Art inspired by Paul Klee.

Paul Klee:18 December 1879 – 29 June 1940) was a Swiss-born artist. His highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism. 2KS have been studying the artist particularly looking at his painting of a Castle which links directly to their topic.
