Grades 1-8 studied Georgia O’Keeffe’s flower paintings. The students made an impressive list of observations, noting the colors used, the overall feel of the paintings and her use of space. Our recreations focused on trying to fill the page with the flower(s) and creating muted backgrounds as shown in the paintings. Lower Elementary used construction paper crayons on their choice of paper; Upper Unit created their flowers using glue outlines and pastel chalks on mat board.
