Georgia O'Keeffe

Third Grade
Students created beautiful oil pastel flowers imspired by the life and works of the fabulous Georgia O'Keeffe.
After a slide presentation, my third grade was given the task of choosing and then enlarging flower images (like O'Keeffe) to magnify their details.

Students had a base knowledge of the color wheel and how to tint and shade with those colors (using white and black- or a darker value.) We also explored how complementary backgrounds could enhanse their flower images.
