Freedom of Imagination


Polyphony2, by Paul Klee.

Paul Klee, one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, is a wonderful example of a man who seemed to place no restrictions on his own creativity. The breadth of his visual work is simply astonishing; some paintings are so complex and unusual they seem as if they’ve originated from an entirely other plane of existence. Others are extremely simple; basic grid patterns or washes of colour.


Fire in the Evening, by Paul Klee

The example of Paul Klee is but one example of how artists lead us to look at life in different ways and to consider new possibilities through the art they create. This is one of the great gifts of creative freedom.

Having the freedom to explore and interpret the world in our own unique ways allows us to ‘draw’ our own conclusions. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to create art.


This amazing painting is by a Grade 2 student at Wm. Burgess PS in Toronto. Freedom of imagination on display. Beautiful!
