Art Therapy Project: Georgia O’Keeffe Big Flower
On the paper, have the artist cut out and glue the green leaf shapes onto the paper. Next, cut out and glue the large curvy shape on the paper (layering on top of the leaves). Cut the paper with the straight lines. You will have strips of paper. Have the artist experiment with these and glue them on top of the other shapes.
Modifications and Tips:
For artists with more fine motor challenges, draw simple oval shapes on different colored papers and have the artist tear along the edges of paper. Tear straight strips of paper, then layer the pieces.
For artists who have more challenges using scissors, draw simple circles/ovals on the paper and have the artist cut around them. This makes cutting the shapes simpler
Practice with the artist drawing wavy, straight and curved lines on a practice piece of paper before starting the project. This will help them know and learn the different lines they need for the project. Have the artist repeat the project multiple times.
Complete half the steps of the project and complete the other half later to simplify the lesson even more.
Older kids can experiment with adding paint or crayons to create designs on flower petals.
Artists can create many smaller flowers in a picture.
