Tree of life
The Students will create a painting based on Gustav Klimt’s "Tree of Life" (part of his
Stoclet Frieze mosaics). They will look at and discuss reproductions from Klimt’s
"Golden Phase" and then create their own work using swirling lines of gold paint,
geometric shapes, and embellishments.
