The Elementary Art Students created O'Keeffe inspired pastel paintings.
This week we learned about value while re-creating Georgia O'Keeffe's painting, My Shanty.
Value: Value is the amount of light reflected from the surface. Value creates depth in a picture making the object look 3 D.
We drew circles and practiced making them look like round balls.
We then practiced our value skills and worked with chalk pastels to re-create Georgia O'Keeffe's painting, My Shanty.
Georgia O'Keeffe painted My Shanty in 1922 - the painting is of her studio at Lake George.
The shanty is a physical representation of O'Keeffe's soul, for it is where she can retreat from her surroundings and be only for her art. This shanty—her private studio—has been infused with O'Keeffe's soul.
Here is the Process:
Enjoy our work!
