Artist Study: Georgia O’Keeffe
Georgia O’Keeffe was born near Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. She spent a lot of time alone and loved the outdoors. Her love of nature and living on a farm inspired Georgia to create various paintings of barns.
Country Living – Mixed Media Barns and Corn introduces students to the beautiful landscape paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe. Children will learn about the artist and her background and create a colorful mixed media barn landscape. Also included is a second project based on Georgia’s large corn painting. In this project the children will create their own large scale tempera paint corn painting.
