First grade Gustav Klimt self-portraits in blankets

1st grade artists learned about the life and art of Gustav Klimt. They learned about how he grew up in a large and poor family, how his dad was a gold engraver, how he started off his career designing ceilings in fancy buildings, how he put REAL gold into his paintings, and one of his artworks sold for more money than any painting ever had before!

We were inspired by Klimt's sleeping child artwork so we took photos of ourselves sleeping and put them into a patterned blanket like Klimt's. Then we used his favorite - GOLD to paint the background.
