A few weeks ago, our kids learned about the stunning work of artist, Georgia O'Keefe.
First, we discussed the difference between "bird's eye" views and "bug's eye" view. Then, I requested each artist sketch a quick example of one or both as a warm up so I knew they were grasping the concept.
Each artist then grabbed a flower for inspiration.
And they began to sketch and shade their lovely flowers in complementary colors of choice. They are breath taking.
Coloring their drawings in complementary colors really made the flowers POP!
And drawing in black glue finished their portraits, which was inspired by this lesson!
I am absolutely in love!
