This was a quick one-day project about Georgia O'Keeffe. Believe it or not, she was from Sun Prairie, WI! That blew the kids' minds. We talked about how Georgia's paintings depicted enlarged flowers and because of their size those flowers became the emphasis/focal point of the artwork.
We drew out a flower shape, really making sure that our flowers were HUGE! We also talked about how good artists having things come off the edge of the paper. After they drew their flower, they sharpie'd and then erased the pencil lines. We re-touched on the watercolor technique wet-on-wet. This was a method that we used on our fall leaves earlier in the year. We combined this painting technique with warm or cool colors to make these beautiful flowers!
