O'Keefe flowers

Kindergarten and first grade artists looked at the life and artwork of Georgia O'Keefe. She is a famous female, American painter noted for her large, colorful paintings of flowers and other natural objects. We also found inspiration in time lapse videos of flowers opening and closing and sunflowers following the sun. We began by painting with primary colors. We painted ten randomly placed blobs of each color. Then using markers we added stems, leaves and grass. Then using a variety of colored markers, we added petals and looking at photos of actual flowers drew and colored petals to finish our landscape artwork.

4th grade sky scrapers continued...
