MATERIALS
• Card stock paper, black
• Old magazines
• Scissors
• Glue stick

DIRECTIONS
1. Students look for a person with exposed arms in old magazines. They are to cut out the head and arms as three separate pieces.
2. The body parts are arranged on the black paper in the same manner they were in the magazine. Students carefully glue these down with a glue stick.
3. The fun part! Explain again to the students that Klimt was considered a master at both decorating and painting and they are to fill in their person with an amazing, over-the-top piece of clothing with lots of pattern all around the background.
