In this class, students will "travel" through Gustav Klimt's paintings while listening to a fairy tale. As we go on the quest of finding the golden gown (following the main character of the fairy tale), we will look at several paintings and notice what makes them special. We'll briefly talk about what artists do. We will discover some of the elements we might see in presented artworks, like colors, lines, shapes, ornaments, etc. In a second portion of the class, we will make a craft inspired...
Students will: • learn some facts about Klimt • learn (or review) what artists do • practice their observation skills • exercise their fine motor skills while working on an art project • use their imagination
