Georgia O’Keeffe & Painted Paper

Over the past two weeks we looked at the works of Georgia O’Keeffe. O’Keeffe famously painted large-scale flowers and beautiful desert landscapes. While looking at her work, we studied two Elements of Art, SHAPE and TEXTURE.  We built upon students’ prior knowledge by creating our own flowers using  organic and geometric shapes. Painted paper gave each flower a unique texture. Together we explored how shapes create images.
