Autumn Leaves

The 3rd Grade students learned about the life and work of American Artist, Georgia O’Keeffe. She was known for her paintings of nature, specifically large details of flowers. Students put a spin on that by using the changing leaves as the inspiration. Each student chose their leaf and drew it using a bottle of glue on black paper. Once the glue was dry they used chalk pastels to blend warm and cool colors into their artwork.
