Pee Wee Art – Gustav Klimt

Our morning Pee Wee Art Class (Age 2-3) will be starting up again on Tuesday Nov 1st, 10-10:45am. You can register online or call 562-912-4800.

Here is a Gustav Klimt theme we did a few weeks ago in Pee Wee… The projects focus on process, while exposing children to art history, shape/form/texture and harmonious colors.

I love all the different results that were achieved with the same materials. Wish I had time to post them all! See you class!!

Klimt + LB Parks & Rec Classes

Our Little Picasso’s Class (Age 4-6) is now available through Long Beach Parks & Recreation beginning TH, June 9th. This class is my favorite to teach. I love to see the kids delve into the projects and come out feeling confident about what they made.

Here is an example of what we made last week… We looked at some kid-friendly works of Gustav Klimt and focused on his use of pattern and the color gold (ooooh, gold!). Students and parents really loved this project. It had a little of everything… drawing, painting, shapes, patterns, cutting, pasting and ,as always, room for a little self expression.

1. The kids were given a piece of transparency film and painted one side with gold acrylic.
2. Then we placed the film –wet side down– onto a black backing (the paint has to be wet to stick).
3. Dry side up, we drew our patterns & talked about alignment.
4. Lastly, students added more Klimt-like patterning & colors using paper.
