Georgia O’Keeffe

I have begun introducing our first artist of the school year to the students this week. We will be focusing on the artwork of Georgia O’Keeffe. O’Keeffe is most famously known for her large flower paintings, but painted many things from nature.  

 The students took a close work at how she used color and value in her paintings. We practiced some new coloring techniques using value scales and color blending before jumping into our first big project. The results were fabulous!
