Trees à la Gustav Klimt
Sept. 19 welcomed family and friends back to Chapel Haven for the YCBA’s Exploring Artism program. The topic of this month’s lesson was Austrian artist, Gustav Klimt and his trees.
Participants looked closely at a few different trees painted by Klimt then used the iPad app PlayART (for purchase here). Each participant was able to create their own digital Klimt “painting.”
After composing Klimt compositions on the ipad, participants looked to their handout to inspire their own large, gold tree paintings.
After painting the tree trunk and branches, participants bedazzled their trees with gems, sequins, and foil shapes for their very own Klimt-inspired tree.
Fun was had by all and we look forward to our next meeting on Saturday, Oct. 17.
