E L E M E N T A R Y A NEW APPROACH TO O'KEEFFE Beth Hubbert I have taught lessons about Geor- gia O'Keeffe in my second grade c lasses over the years and used many different media in the pro- cess. This year, however, I tried s omething different, and in doing so have found my favorite art media for a memorable lesson about O'Keeffe's abstract flower paintings. Taught in the springtime, this lesson has been a great success with students and parents alike. Life of Georgia We start with a brief overview of O'Keeffe's life: her childhood on the prairies of Wisconsin, her art school experiences in Chicago and New York City, her teaching experiences in Texas (this is fun since we live in Texas), and her Ghost Ranch home in the desert of New Mexico. I share some wonderful children's books that state the most important facts about O'Keeffe. Danial Matus 34 APRIL 2017 SchoolArts
