Klimt Tree of Life

2nd graders learned about the artist Gustav Klimt. We read the story Klimt's Cat and looked at examples of his artworks. We talked about common things that we saw in Klimt's artwork: the use of the color gold, shapes, and patterns. We painted the background gold first. Then 2nd graders painted trees free form (no drawing first). Lastly, we added oil pastel and sequence details to the trees.
