Continuing with our art lessons, we read about Georgia O’Keeffe. I love the work of Georgia O’Keeffe. I love that she’s a woman and I love that she painted what she liked. 

We read lots of library books about Georgia, my favorite was Georgia O’Keeffe in Hawaii: When Georgia O’Keeffe Painted What She Pleased. I took Holly and Greta to our local rose garden and they sketched what they wanted to paint. Later, I encouraged them to use bright paints to paint their flowers. I love how their art turned out. 

And a couple of great quotes from Georgia O’Keeffe. Trying to tie in some writing with the arts. 

To Create one’s world in any of the arts takes courage.”

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way - things I had no words for.”

This is one of the things I love about homeschool.
