|The photo shoot|
7 and 8 year olds
We modelled the days art on the wonderful art made by Gustav Klimt. I found this work done by Jenny, on her blog. http://jennykaykidsart.blogspot.co.nz/
I showed the children a few pieces of work that Klimp has made famous...eg; 'The Kiss'. We had a discussion about the features of his work and how we could use those ideas in our own art.
They made the background by mixing primary acrylic colours.
They used chalk on a second piece of paper to draw up their robes and to divide them into four parts. They left a space for the faces that we had photographed earlier. Each section was patterned using a different medium.
