Flower Head


Colour, contemporary artist, form, line, pattern, sculpture, shape, visual element. 

This project teaches children about the visual elements of flowers, including shape, texture, colour, pattern and form. They also explore various artistic methods, including drawing, printmaking and 3-D forms, using paper and clay.

The children we be introduced to the theme of the project by watching a Flower video. The children we be encourage to talk about the flowers' visual elements, including their shape, form, colour and pattern. The children will observe and explore flowers first-hand by either having real flowers to sketch or by going outside to draw flowers in situ in a garden or wild landscape. We will encourage them to look carefully and draw what they see, naming the different flower parts. 

We made flowers out of paper plates and then we looked at the shape and texture of flowers by making a class collages.
