20180720_070033.jpgYesterday our young Art Campers painted Georgia O’Keeffe’s “A Sunflower from Maggie”.  They decided that a blue background would be nice instead of the tan original.  They did an awesome job!  We still have one session of camp for ages 5-7 left this summer on July 30-31.  Click here to register.  There are two sessions of camp remaining this summer for ages 8-13 too.  Click here and scroll down to see the dates and register.

O’Keeffe Poppy

Born November 15, 1887, Georgia O’Keeffe was an American artist who became known for her large floral blossom paintings, bone paintings, and landscapes around her New Mexico home.  She is often called the “Mother of American Modernism”.  Her vision was unique and she stood by it often saying that her work spoke for her and it  didn’t need her words to enhance it.

Almost everyone will recognize an O’Keeffe painting when seeing one as it has a distinct look and style.  She lived until 1986. You can learn more about her by visiting the O’Keeffe Museum website here.

SAMSUNG SAMSUNGGeorgia O’Keeffe, well-known for her very large paintings of flowers, said, “I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty.”
