Georgia O'Keeffe Flowers
We introduced the painter Georgia O'Keeffe.
We looked at some of her paintings of flowers,bones and desert skies.
We noticed that many of her flower paintings were painted from an "up close" perspective. We set out fresh flowers from our garden and magnifying glasses so we might gain some Georgia O'Keeffe inspiration.
We set up a provocation with pictures of her flower paintings and a variety of mediums;watercolors in squeeze bottles,tempera paint,glue and a mixture of colored sand and glue.
The children's paintings were colorful and bright just like the ones we saw by Georgia O'Keeffe.
