A two page PDF resource (can be photocopied back to back and laminated for repeated use) on the artist Gustav Klimt.
Can be used as a sub lesson during a relevant project (colour, pattern, abstraction, portraiture, Modern Art ...), an extension activity, independent study, or as a whole class task.
Students are asked to read the information about the artist then answer questions, then show their visual understanding through the identification of motifs in the work. They then create their own practical response to Klimt's art.
The lesson requires minimal materials and can be carried out in a non-specialist classroom.
A great introduction to an important 20th century artist whose work is inspiring and engaging for young people.
