Georgia O’Keefe

American painter1887-1986Spent many years painting in New MexicoConsidered the Mother of American Modernism

She was best known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers and New Mexico landscapes.

“I’ll paint what I see-what the flower is to me but I’ll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it.” ~Georgia O’KeefeSlide6


There is no single date for the beginning of the modern era in America, as dozens of painters were active at the beginning of the 20th century. It was the time when the first


landscapes, still-life and portraits appeared; bright colors entered the palettes of painters, and the first non-objective paintings were displayed in the galleries.

The modernist movement during the formative years was also becoming popular in New York City by 1913

The beginning of American modernist painting can be dated to the 1910s. The early part of the period lasted 25 years and ended around 1935, when modern art was referred to as

avant-garde (experimental, radical, unorthodox or pushing the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm.The 1913 Armory Show in New York City displayed the contemporary work of European artists, as well as Americans. The






paintings startled many American viewers who were accustomed to more conventional art. However, inspired by what they saw, many American artists were influenced by the radical and new ideas.

The early 20th century was marked by the exploration of different techniques and ways of artistic expressiveness. Slide7

Today’s Project

Chalk on large white paperSprayCut out petal shapesGlue to small colored paper

Black detailsSlide10

Step 1 – Chalk on white paper

Select a chromatic color scheme such asYellow-orange- redPink- purple- blueYellow-lime- green

Fill in large white paper with progressive color changes

Orient color stripes diagonally on the paper or make wavy lines

Smear chalk to fill in gaps and blur changes between colors

Wash hands!

Smeared = good

Not smeared = not as goodSlide11

Step 2 – Spray fixative

When you are finished filling in your chalk page, let a parent know.Parents will spray the fixative outdoors.The fixative makes it so that it will no longer smear.

It may need a few minutes to dry.Slide12

Step 3 – Cut petal shapes

Your flower will need to fill the entire page and can even go off the edge of the page.Look at your stripes and think of how the petals can be arranged with the color changing stripes parallel to the edge of the petal shape (not through it)

Cut petal shapes from your chalk page

You will need at least 8 and the sizes should vary a little so that the outside petals are larger than the insideSlide13

Step 4 – Arrange petals

Choose a contrasting color as your background paper.Put your name on the back.Arrange your petals on your page so that the flower is NOT perfectly centered. Angled is good!

Petals can go to the edge of the paper or a little bit over

The biggest petals should be placed first to make a top and bottom petal.

The smaller petals can help shape this into an oval or circle.

Try to arrange it so that the edges of the petals contrast against each other.Slide14

Step 5 – Glue it down

Use glue stick to glue layers down.You can start with smaller, inner petals, putting glue all the way to the edges. Be aware that some sections will need to stay up until the biggest petals are glued and THEN can be pushed down.Slide15

Step 6 – Black details

Using the small black paper, cut out shapes for pistil, stamen, and other details for the center of the flower.Glue downSlide16


Once the project is finished, student work should be mounted on black paper and displayed either in the classroom or in the designated area in the hallway.If there are some who have not finished, please check with the teacher on how they would like to proceed. Do not assume that it ok to continue the project after the allotted time.
