My first grade students studied the artist Gustav Klimt. Gustav Klimt is known as the Master of Shapes and Patterns. You might know his most famous artwork "The Hug." They learned about outline, positive and negative space, shapes and patterns. They painted their own "Tree of Life" with gold paint using a paintbrush and Q-tip. Then, they went back and added circular patterns on the tree with oil pastels. Wow! They look great!

I like my artwork and it is pretty. I made a tree and my art teacher helped me.
