A beautiful lesson that has been at West Woodland for many years.  Studing the flower paintings of an american master, Georgia O’Keefe students learn mixed media techniques while working with oil pastels and watercolor.  They are also developing their observation skills as they paint a close-up view of an object.   I did this lesson with 1st graders and it worked beautifully each student created their own colorful and gorgeous flower.  Also a wonderful lesson for 3rd graders during their fall plant study.
