Whitney Kids Art Club:
Georgia O’Keeffe

WED, Aug 4, 2021
4–5 pm

Online, via Zoom

For kids of all ages

Welcome to Whitney Kids Art Club! Join Whitney educators each week to complete a new artmaking project inspired by current exhibitions. Our programs aim to reach a neurodiverse audience with a wide range of learning styles and developmental stages. Tell a friend and join the club!

This week’s activity is inspired by the artist Georgia O’Keeffe. We will learn how O’Keeffe looked to botanical forms like plants, flowers, and bones to inspire her paintings, creating compositions that hover between abstraction and representation. Then we will create a botanical installation inspired by the natural world around us!

Materials:

  • Pencil and paper
  • Scissors
  • Watercolor
  • Treasures from nature
  • Optional:
    • Colorful paper
    • Tape
