Georgia O’Keeffe Meets the Zentangle

Georgetown’s 5th grade artists are working on a stunning project that I just can’t wait to display in the hallways!  We’ve been learning about the art of Georgia O’Keeffe and examining her beautiful large flower paintings.  We learned that O’Keeffe wanted people to really, really stop and look at her flower paintings, so she made the paintings large to draw their eyes in to the piece.  The zentangle flower in our 5th grade project does the same – we can’t stop looking at these beautiful flowers!  A lesson in mixing tints and creating value completed these zentangle flower pieces.
