Flowers are in bloom and second and third grade students are creating Georgia O'keefe inspired abstracted flowers! We studied the life and work of Georgia O'keefe with a particular focus on her series of flowers. Each student chose an actual flower to guide them in this project. Using a view finder, they could "zoom-in" to their flowers to create a pleasing composition. When the students decided on a composition, they sketched their flower images onto paper. The students applied color using oil pastel, and then chose a complementary color for the background. These are currently on display in the school lobby!
