Gustav Klimt used gold leaves in his artwork, wore long gowns and adored cats. He’s my kind of man. He was an artist who lived in freedom and painted every day. It will be a delight for students to learn about his life, and the art he created.
This lesson will teach you all about Gustav Klimt. It also teaches how to create The Tree of Life. This piece will be closely examined to discover more about symbolism as well as how to apply it. For creating shapes we’ll use metallic paints, pencils, as well corks and cotton buds. You will get a sparkling Klimt-tree.

This lesson was a great success with my children. They were absorbed into making beautiful things and loved blinging them up. Highly recommended.
This was done at home with my 13-year old reluctant son. It was a great experience for both of us and it is now a beautiful reminder that we can have our own trees of life. Beautiful video that is child-centered and very inspiring. Many thanks!
