Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was a fabulous artist during the Art Noveau movement. His use of patterns and rich colors created flowing portraits and landscapes that resembled tapestries with intricate details.
Second grade used printmaking skills, cut paper and oil pastels to create imagery that celebrated this romantic period of art. The gold ink and papers were a "hit" with the students. We looked at a variety of works and found some of his most popular images, shapes and symbols to try in our own designs.
Creation day one- we used silver, white, black and gold papers to create layered blocks on a larger square.
Creation day two- we used stamps and found objects to print in gold ink.
Creation day three- we used oil pastels to embellish the spaces we felt needed a boost.
