In the Style of…Georgia O’Keeffe

Following the suggestions in Playful Learning (, 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.
