Art & DT



Autumn 1

This half term the children have studied the artist Gustav Klimt. They have looked at his use of symbols, shapes, patterns and colour. We have focused on his work on trees. The piece of artwork below is called 'The Tree of Life'. The branches twist, twirl, turn and spiral towards the sky. It shows the connection between heaven and earth.

The children have recreated Klimt's swirls and spirals in different ways.
