Our featured artist last week we learned about and was inspired by was Georgia O’Keeffe. She was born on a farm in Wisconsin and since she was 12 years old she knew she wanted to be an artist. After going to art school and living some time in New York City, she felt called to leave the big city and spend some time in Texas and eventually New Mexico. She loved being alone and she spent many, many hours at a time painting. I especially love her flowers that she painted. She painted them big; it feels like you are looking at them through a magnifying glass. If you want to view some of her work and learn more about Georgia, you can do that at the Georgia O’Keeffe museum located in Santa Fe, New Mexico.


We enjoyed reading books about Georgia and viewing her work during our Opening Ritual. The girls were given some illustration board and could choose between oil pastels or watercolors and got to work on their own “Georgia O’Keeffe flowers.” Here’s a peek at their work-in-progress.

Final Works of Art…

Bright, colorful, and each one unique! I think Georgia would be proud. 🙂

Reminder: Our last class for the Spring session is May 20th!!
