The shape of flowers

The home-school art class explored creating flowers beginning with the circle shape.

Starting with a circle the students begin to transform the shape into a flower with scissors, removing various shapes to imitate a flower design.

Next the students add various layers of shapes to their flower to create a layered flower design.

With many colors, shapes and sizes to employ into their image students have many choices to make in creating their flower design.

It’s really fun to watch the creative process bloom in these kids as they immerse themselves in making art.

As the flower project continues to grow, so does the students’ confidence in their artistic achievements.

Every child is an artist.  The problem is staying an artist when you grow up.  -Pablo Picasso
