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.
