Students learned about O’Keeffe through a power point presentation. They viewed several examples of her artwork. We had a discussion on how large she painted her flowers, sometimes so large they became an abstraction- or it didn’t look exactly like a flower anymore.
Students drew their flowers from step by step directions in a drawing guide. They had a choice of how to draw their petal shape to make their flower unique. They were required to draw flower large enough to fill the entire paper.
Students then colored in with oil pastel. We discussed ways to color neatly, and they also learned about blending techniques.
