Cupcake Flower Garden inspired by Georgia O’keeffe

Georgia O’Keeffe’s passion for flower gardens is easy to trasmit to kids. During our week of camp dedicated to Georgia O’Keeffe using the language through art curriculum, we looked at many such paintings including “Mariposa Lilly and India Paintbrush” (1944). This was one of the most loved projects over the course of the campus. Big and small alike loved putting together CUPCAKE FLOWERS and creating their own gardens.
