This second grade project is inspired from Gustav Klimts "The Baby" painting. We actually discussed the life and work of Klimt, and paintings such as The Kiss, Tree and Life, and self portrait of "Adele Bloch-bauer ". We talked about how he used shapes and patterns in his paintings and how he went through a gold phase.
Student's quilts are colorful and show contrast through the use of pattern shapes.
This lesson was done with sharpie, markers, and crayons. Gold paint was added to back ground to compliment the great and fabulous Klimt.
This project was also taken from the "Dynamic Book of Art Projects"mentioned in my last blog. However I changed the materials a little to be more appropriate for second grade.
