The second grade students ushered in spring by creating their Georgia O'keefe inspired abstract flowers.
We began by discussing composition. Each student chose a flower and viewed it through a view finder. The view finder allowed the students to "zoom in" and "zoom out" to find a composition that was pleasing to them. After the flowers were drawn, the second graders were to choose a complimentary color to use for the background. These beautiful images are hanging in the lobby of the school.
