Masterpiece Monday ~ Georgia O’Keeffe

I admit it…I neglected art a bit during the school year because life happens and things like art get pushed to the back burner.

But no more, I declare!!!

  Let there be ART!!!

It's fun and my girls are really creative too.

We kicked off our Masterpiece Monday today with the study of Georgia O'Keeffe flowers that I saw over at Pink and Green Mama.  I was going for easy, and this seemed easy to start our first lesson.

First, we studied examples online

and then I had them draw a picture of a flower on their paper, making sure that each petal touched the edge of the paper.

Next they were to trace over the pencil marks with a black Sharpie, but low and behold we could not find a black Sharpie...anywhere!

Red, Green, Blue.

Got it!

Black...MIA

we improvised with a regular black marker, which turned out to work too.

McKenzie wanted in on the painting action, then decided her books were more interesting.
