A pioneer Of Modern Art- Georgia O'Keefe


 "When you take a flower in your hand 

              and really look at it,

        it's your world for the moment. 

I want to give that world to someone else." 

                  – Georgia O'Keeffe

Artist, painter. Born on November 15, 1887, in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. Known for her striking flower paintings and other captivating works, Georgia O'Keeffe was one of the greatest American artists of the twentieth century. She took to making art at a young age and went to study at the Art Institute of Chicago in the early 1900s. Later, while living in New York, she studied with such artists as William Merritt Chase as a member of the Art Students League.
Students Experienced:
  • Learning about Georgia O’Keeffe and her flower paintings
  • Working on creating art in Georgia O'Keeffe's style
  •  Drew an object larger than life
My students with the help of our lovely & talented art teacher used paper plates to create their flower designs.
Some students decided to paint their flower designs on large paper.
This was such an easy enjoyable lesson.
