February - O'Keeffe

Our artist for the month of February is Georgia O'Keeffe. Her beautiful abstract studies of flowers and other natural items captivate our imaginations by drawing us into minute details.

The materials you will need for this months lesson are:
  • One 12"x12" piece of white construction paper
  • Paper towels - usually these are optional, but they are essential this week.
  • A box of Payons or other watercolor crayons (watercolor colored pencils would be an okay substitute if absolutely necessary)
  • Watercolor brush - If possible, avoid the plastic brushes that come in boxes of watercolors. Instead children will have more control using a round brush approx. size 6
  • Small baby-food jar or tuna-fish can to hold water (choose something shallow please)
  • A Black crayon - regular wax version, not a watercolor crayon
  • Pencil (any writing pencil will do, you do not need drawing pencils)
  • Glue stick
See you Tuesday, February 7th at 6:30!
