Spring is in the air and flowers are blooming everywhere including our classroom!
We just started our study on plants and wanted to integrate it with art. We decided to use the art of Georgia O'keefe as our inspiration and focused on the use of positive/negative space, large scale drawings and shapes. We first discussed the work of Georgia O'keefe using the Smart Board and then watched two step-by-step flower drawing tutorials. The students sketched a daisy and/or a carnation in their art journals in pencil and then traced over it with a black marker. We were working on taking up as much positive space on the page as possible.
Here are some pages from the Smart Board Notebook file we used.
It is available as a freebie at TPT.
Here are the two tutorials we showed the students in class.
