In Art Foundations, students have been learning about Georgia O'Keefe and her artwork. We went on a field-trip to Ferguson's Greenhouse in Spirit Lake to take photos of flowers.
Students are working on cropping flower image and enlarging a part of it onto watercolor paper. We will be practicing different watercolor techniques to create the painting. Students are focusing on the art element value for this unit. They are trying to show a range of light and dark values when they paint the flower close-up.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once you grow up.
