This isn't my only Klimt Artist Study. I love Gustav Klimt! The challenge comes with showing examples in elementary art and not having the class go NUTS over a bare breast showing! This project has all the great colors and patterns available without the needed editing! Ha ha!
Look at this beautiful Baby in a blanket. Awe... now show some examples of beautiful patchwork. If you can get some, bring in some examples! Look at how all the squares are different. Or how they create patterns. What beauty you can find in quilting! Now for the guided drawing.... easy easy! Draw your baby head near the top of your page, then draw your diagonals down to the sides of your paper. Fill in this triangle space with your own lovely patchwork! This is such a gorgeous project on display. I like to use sharpies and markers so my artists use more details, but we have also used the melting plates with crayons. It resembles painting that way.
