Tree of Life Paintings

Art Start April 2013


Art Start students learned about artist Gustav Klimt and his "Tree of Life" painting.  Then they made their own paintings in a similar style using metallic tempera and metallic sharpies on black paper.  







Those who finished early worked on several life-sized trees for a "forest of life" displayed at our annual art show. Scroll down to see the beautiful variety of creative expression!
