Klimt Ladies

For the last couple of weeks, we have been learning about Gustav Klimt, the Viennese artist famous for his Art Nouveau paintings of women.  Klimt used lots of pattern and lots of gold in his paintings.  We began this project by reading Klimt and his Cat.  Then we drew our ladies on colored paper.  We used tempera paint to add color.  Metallic gold and silver paints really made the difference.  For the final step, we made stamps out of mat board and foam stick-on shapes.  Students really enjoyed this part.  They could use their stamps wherever they wanted on their paintings.  These glamorous ladies have such great expressions and personalities.
