Shhhhh…..There’s Somebody Sleeping Under My Klimt Quilt!

The second grade students learned all about pattern, shapes and lines while designing  their colorful quilt compositions, based on a Gustav Klimt painting. (Klimt is one of my favorite artists!) They used motifs, commonly found in Klimt’s work. This is one of my favorite projects. I looooooooove these 🙂 NB. Parents: I have posted an informative link to further explore Klimt’s work under Links to the right. Please note that some of Klimt’s work contains nudity. You will probably want to check this site out first before allowing your children to see it.

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity.
