The fifth grade students learned about the famous American artist Georgia O'Keeffe and her paintings that focused on close-ups of flowers. They created their own flower in the style of O'Keeffe, focusing on open composition and experimentation of line. Afterwards, students used a batik technique with glue for the flower outline and filled in the shapes with oil pastel.

After studying Georgia O'Keefe's work, students drew their own flower on 12'' x18" black construction paper. We focused on open composition, however, some of my students decided to stay within the lines of the paper. After, they applied glue to the lines of the flower. Once dried, they added oil pastel to the flower composition. We did a class experimenting with gradation and blending of colors, and then they set off to applying those techniques to their work. Hope this helped!
