Georgia O'Keeffe Unit Study

GeorgiaOKeefe
We recently studied the artist Georgia O'Keeffe.

She is one of the most famous female American artists.

She created beautiful pictures of flowers and desert scenes. She is a great artist to study if you have boys and girls. She will appeal to both.


We read a variety of books to learn more about her and then created our own master pieces.

Here are the books we used to learn about Georgia.








I found some wonderful worksheets over at Garden Of Praise.

They have a coloring page of the painting Light Iris, which you can print on card

stock so the kids can watercolor the picture.

They have a biography page, a word search, a word scramble, a cross word puzzle, and a test.

After learning about Georgia, we had fun creating some art!

    Love the artwork...your kids are so great at this!

    We read the Venezia book as well....and I got a video out of the lib with Joan Allen and Jeremy Irons ( as Steiglitz) We've not watched it as of yet!
    I planned to have the kids paint in her style as well but I love what you did too, with "Red Poppy" pix!

    Have a great weekend!
