3rd Grade Georgia O'Keefe Flowers
Third grade completed these lovely flowers after looking at artwork by Georgia O'Keefe. Students began with a white sheet of paper and pictures of O'Keefe's work. Students drew the flowers with pencil first, then traced over the lines with heavy black crayon lines. Students then used glue to trace over the crayon lines and the flowers had to dry. The next class period, students discussed color schemes and used chalk to color the flowers. As students were finishing, I gave specific instructions on how to add pop with a little color on the outside of the petals. The flowers were given a frame with construction paper and laminated to ensure they would stay smudge free.
