In the Style of…Georgia O’Keeffe

Following the suggestions in Playful Learning (http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1590308190), we studied the artist, Georgia O’Keeffe. We learned that she was from Wisconsin and that she liked to paint nature big. We loved looking at her beautiful flower paintings in a book we had checked out from the library.

Then we got out our biggest painting paper (which wasn’t very big; I think this summer we will revisit this and paint outside on a bedsheet) and some flowers for inspiration, and painted big flowers. At C’s request, I penciled in a flower for her to paint.

  • LipperLoppy? what???

    “LipperLoppy” is a word that my daughters invented. It is usually used as a silly adjective or noun. It's a frequent family joke and a good representation of our family's crazy joyful life.
