Finding symbolism in Klimt's Tree of Life

January 16, 2017

To explore the connection between heaven, earth and the underworld we took a closer look at Klimt's Tree of Life in today's class.  The children created their own tree landscapes using gold paper which they collaged onto their backgrounds.  The ripped and cut spirals for their extending branches with really unique results.  To add symbolism they all found motifs and object from magazines that meant something to them and their own life and adorned their branches with them.  This was a really fun and engaging class and the children loved finding all the elements to add to their masterpieces.
