Art Week

Georgia O’Keeffe – Modernism

 

Year five have been learning about Georgia O’Keeffe and her beautifully famous floral pieces.

To start off our project we learnt all about Georgia O’Keeffe’s artwork and what influenced her. 

 

Next we worked on some techniques that were used to create numerous Georgia O’Keeffe pieces. 

We then designed our own floral pieces influenced by Georgia O’Keeffe. 

Finally we selected our favourite design and created it.
