Does anyone have a lesson plan on Georgia O'Keefe, or an art production on
flowers? I'm desparate!

What age? For first, I show slides of Hawaiian flowers. Show "Poppy" by
O'Keeffe. Talk about her work, woman artist and that she wanted people to
slow down and look at nature more closely. We also discuss the importance
of bee's to plant reproduction.

We paint on 11 x 17" paper with flourescent paints, one large flower from a
"Bee's eye view"...no stems. Also demo paint technique including the use of
the brush handle to scratch into the paint. It works very well.
