The striking image of a calla lilly as portrayed by Georgia O’Keeffe in “Calla Lilly in Tall Glass n.11” seemed like a great piece to use to introduce different shapes to our group of kids at the Language through Art summer camp. I was a little worried about having the kids reproduce such a difficult piece when I ran across a post at Krokotak that was just what we needed! When I pulled out the materials required to create the flower the kids all started to giggle but then when their flowers started to come together they were tickled pink with the result. Come see how we did it!

Your reprodution of the O’keeffe orignal is now complete. Would you ever have thought that a round cotton pad could be turned into a flower petal?
