D. TEACHER INSTRUCTION: Student Art by Maria - The teacher will begin by showing Gustav Klimts Baby (Cradle) and ask the children what they see. The teacher will ask follow up questions to further generate discussion - If students havent already brought pattern up, the teacher will ask if the students notice any patterns in the painting. Following, the teacher will ask the students to define pattern. - The teacher will demonstrate basic patterns and show a handout with examples of patterns - The children will then practice making their own patterns - Following, the teacher will describe the process for the Learning Activity: (First Class Period) - First to draw the round space where the babys head will go, then the shape around it which will make up the blanket. - The next step is to divide the blanket into at least 4 spaces in which the students will put their original patterns. - After the pencil drawing with all details is complete, students will use a sharpie marker to trace the line leaving bold marks emphasizing the patterns (Second Class Period) - Next, watercolor will be used to enhance the pattern and complete the painting. Children will be reminded to be thoughtful when choosing colors (Third Class Period)

- After the paint has dried, the student will select a few areas on their painting which they would like to enhance with gold glitter. The children will be able to observe Klimts paintings that utilize gold leaf. - The last step is for the students to back their painting on a piece of colored construction paper of their choosing. - As an extension if some students finish early, they will be given paper squares on which they will design patterns.
