2nd grade O'Keeffe paintings.

Georgia O'Keeffe study.

Second grade studied "Ladder to the Moon" by Georgia O'Keeffe. We discussed the Sun Prairie community and how Georgia was born here.  Some of these will be on display at the public library in February as part of an Georgia O'Keeffe art show. 

"Ladder to the Moon" By Georgia O'Keeffe.

Second grade O'Keeffe paintings.  These are totally spiritual don't you think.  We discussed and learned about the artist's New Mexico years.  These paintings will be part of a larger Westside art show over at the Sun Prairie Public Library in February.

Free choice drawing.

Free choice drawing is where it is at!  I love the fact that students love free choice drawing time.  It gives them to own their full artistic process.  A fifth grader gave me this of course I pinned it to the wall!

Fifth grade eye study.

My fifth grade students did an eye study where they learned about the anatomy of the human eye and how to draw through observation.  We used the splattering and dripping technique with watercolor.  We discussed composition and use of space as well.  These sure are good LOOKING!
