I have a questionabout an art lesson that I have been planning. I am a
studetn at Indiana Uiversity and teaching Saturday morning art classes to
children ages eight and nine. I have two boys and six girls in my
class. I would like to do the lesson on Art Nouveau. I would like to
introduce Klimt, and incoporate a few of his works into the
"Looking and Talking" section of the lesson. I am not familiar with the
titles of the pieces off hand that the kids and I would be discussing,
but I know they would be a 'Judith', 'a tree', 'The Kiss', and some
others. I would like to show 'the Virgins', but do you think that that
woudl be too sexual--do you think that HE is too sexual to show? If I
did show 'The Virgins', I would put a little piece of tape over an
exposed breast. I just love Klimt!
We would just focus on the styles and how he uses gold and bold
colors. We would also talk about the way he uses a variety of shapes
in his paintings.
HELP ME, IS THIS LESSON "X" RATED?!
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about this?
