"Wake Up and Smell the Roses” - Georgia O’Keeffe    

Project URL: http://teachnet-lab.org/IS24/llangsner/georgia_o.htm

HOW IT WORKS

Students create a watercolor painting in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe and respond critically to a variety of her works displayed on various Web sites.

Teacher preparation steps include researching Web sites on Georgia O'Keeffe, gathering resource and reference materials, acquiring prints and reproductions of the artist's work, and gathering sample student artwork.

Student activities include reviewing and critiquing Web sites, viewing and discussing a video documentary, and responding to and analyze works of art by O'Keeffe.

The students’ work is assessed via reading comprehension review questions, classroom discussion of the video presentation, critiques of the artist's works, and through their watercolor interpretations.

WHAT YOU NEED

A computer with Internet access is essential, and a scanner is useful. A VCR and monitor is used to view the videotape "Georgia O’Keeffe: Woman in Art" -- an insightful look into the woman herself as she speaks about her life and work.

THE STUDENTS

This program was done with seventh grade art students, but it can be adapted to other grade levels.

TIPS

Display O'Keeffe's paintings on the blackboard. Have students compare the paintings with real or silk flowers.

STANDARDS

Students create a watercolor painting in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe, exhibit their knowledge in the use and care of the watercolor art medium, and respond critically to a variety of works by the artist.

Lori Langsner is an art teacher at Myra S. Barnes I.S. 24 on Staten Island. As a wife, mother, and full- time art teacher, Lori finds very little time to work on her own paintings .By working with students she is able to keep that love alive and instill it in others.
