      Greetings Ruth and all,

      Linda is one of the lucky ones... She doesn't have to write up
      detailed lesson plans at her school.

      If she did have one written - I imagine it would follow something like this.

      Instruction:

      1. Present a brief biography of Austrian artist Gustav Klimt.
      Here are some resources:
      http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Gustav+Klimt&btnG=Google+Search
      2. Show some selected images of Klimt's work via PowerPoint (Klimt is
      not an artist I would let elementary kids surf for images - too many
      nudes).
      3. Finish PowerPoint with images of Tree of Life - include studies
      Klimt did. Include images of Tree of Life from other cultures -
      Discuss similarities... discuss what the trees make them think
      about... What was Klimt trying to communicate?
      http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=Klimt%20tree%20of%20life&btnG=Google+Search&sa=N&tab=wi
      For additional images - look up India Tree of Life and Mexico Tree of
      Life - you can also just look up Tree of Life

      Procedures:
      1.Students make sketches on newsprint of what their tree of
      life/magical tree will look like. These will be their "studies"
      2. Transfer best drawing to drawing paper (colored construction paper).
      3. Color with oil pastels (and metallic pastels) - OR metallic
      crayons/gem crayons.
      4. Write what is magical out their tree - include how they were
      inspired by the Tree of Life by Klimt.

      Alternate lesson:
      use gold scratch board.

      Linda - if you see this - am I close enough?
