Georgia O'Keeffe Flowers :
Georgia O’Keeffe is known as the Mother of American Modernism. She is famous for her paintings of enlarged flowers, southeastern landscapes, and animal skulls. She was also elected as a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Before we start let's watch a couple of videos about Georgia O' Keeffe.
My Name Is Georgia:
Please read through instructions before you begin:
- Use a 8 1/2" x 11" white piece of paper (any paper will do).
- Hold the paper vertically.
- Fold the paper in half, if you would like to draw 2 flowers.
- You may draw any of the flowers found on these videos or you may create one of your own, you decide.
- Carefully draw your close-up flower in the center of the paper. (See examples)
- Draw your flowers large enough so that your hand can not cover it.
- Think of about the details you would like to include in your drawing, the petals, the stamen (the center of the flower), the stem and leaves.
- Once you are done drawing your close-up flower, color your flower in completely as well as the background.
- Use the colors you see in the close-up photo.
- You may color your close-up flower in crayon, magic markers, water color, or color pencils (whatever supplies you have at home).
- When you color the background use the color found in the photo.
- I can't wait to see the beautiful flowers you create!
- Remember: once you are finished with your artwork take a picture of it and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the students name and teacher's name and grade. I will post it on Bells Online Art Gallery.
Here are a few examples of close-ups of flowers that you may choose to draw:
