4th Grade: Georgia O'Keeffe Shells
For this unit students learned about Georgia O'Keeffe and were inspired by her stylistic paintings. Using a seashell to directly observe students were given the challenge of touching all four sides of a piece of paper to draw large such as O'Keeffe. Instead of paint students used oil pastels to achieve a smooth blended look. Working with complimentary colors students had to figure out their dark versus light areas and see past the realistic colors of the shell to a more abstract work.
