Klimt's works of art are renowned for the most detailed and colorful and often applied layers of gold leaf
I'm not sure if you have ever worked with gold leaf
but is isn't easy and surely isn't an easy thing for little hands
but there are lots of alternatives for using gold
this is a stamp with gold ink
they each made their own diary and I told them I get to read it
the seal is wax stamped with various designs I have
they told me they weren't allowed to play with matches
(this is what we did when the liquid gold markers were drying)
art lessons always include music
... very partial to the cello
this is the Tree of Life we are working on
I so enjoy having my computer near
so they can look at an example
and also that we can create to music
Gustav was a "gimper"
are you familiar with that word?
when I googled it I only found it in an urban dictionary which is weird
but to explain in my own words
Gimp is cord..tassels...embellishments and a gimper is one that "adds on"
we began with our colorful background
we added gold and mirrors and jewels
with gold pens rather than gold leaf
ok...this is mine...I confess
I'm not good at plain
it makes me smile to see our new art loft space at 822
alive with the work of children in our community
When we had Zulu Art Gallery there were nearly 40 students
I don't have nearly enough space for that but I actually prefer the smaller classes now that I've done it
You have done a very wonderful thing for us Mr. PV
very wonderful! We are so blessed! Thank you!
We have one more Gustav project to complete before the
these are our invitation post cards this year
created by one of our SHS Art Students
and I proudly add
one of my former students when she was a little girl!
