The third grade students in Mrs. Spool’s art class studied the work of Georgia O’Keeffe for the inspiration of these beautiful works of art. Flowers were drawn to appear close up by touching all four sides of the paper. The fabric technique, batik, was introduced and students imitated this effect by adding glue on top of their pencil lines. Students learned the vocabulary; tints and shades and analogous colors in order to choose their color scheme. Students were then introduced to technique of blending pastels together to show depth in their images. Complementary colors were introduced to use in the background to really make the flowers pop! The results are amazing third graders!
