Tree of Life

Klimt's Tree of Life is the inspirational image for the artwork the kids are creating - it bears the same title as Klimt's famous Stoclet Frieze, c.1909. I've simplified the background for the children to work with and they've done an excellent job on it (see previous post). Today we'll continue to stitch the individual panels together with yarn (one of yesterday's activities), add the second layer (a tree created from wire, tissue paper, and glossy paper triangular 'leaves'), additional details such as butterflies and flowers, and finally, the hanging device. I'm excited to see the finished work and to share that image with you.
