Second graders learned about Georgia O’Keeffe, an American artist who celebrated the details of nature by emphasizing color and size through painting with an extreme close-up perspective. Sometimes she focused so close-up that the paintings became abstract, or unrecognizable as their original realistic forms. Second graders used oil pastels to create their artworks. They chose a subject from nature and super-sized it to bring focus to the beautiful colors and details.
