2nd (2014/15) Grade Georgia O'Keeffe Flowers

To connect with the plan unit the students were working on in their classroom, I taught the students about artist Georgia O'Keeffe and her unique paintings of flowers. The students learned about how O'Keeffe zoomed in on her flowers so that you wouldn't always see the whole thing, but you would see some parts of them very close up. The students worked from photographs of a variety of flowers and zoomed in to create a drawing of the flower they were looking at. They used oil pastels and blended colors together to create beautiful, colorful, bold drawings of flowers. Their flowers are really amazing!!
