4th Grade: Leaves Like O’Keeffe’s

IMG_9723

After “meeting” Georgia O’Keeffe and her work, fourth graders began drawing their leaves from observation today. Students were challenged to zoom in, draw their leaves larger-than-life, and make their drawing touch the edges of the paper.

(I collaborated with a 4th grade teacher to tie this painting lesson into science, and when I google Georgia O’Keeffe paintings was surprised to discover that in addition to her famous flower paintings, Georgia also painted 29 pictures of leaves! Connections are just waiting to be discovered.)
