Georgia O'Keeffe inspired digital paintings done in DrawCast

Georgia O’Keeffe Digital Paintings

Georgia O’Keeffe could very well be one of the greatest female artists of all time- definitely one of the greatest artists of the 20th Century. My students did a web quest on Georgia O’Keeffe, a lot of them gave them a summary of what her life was about. I had them explore some of the artwork that she made and together they collaborated on what her artwork had in common.

Georgia O’Keeffe Lesson Plan

Years ago, I made this Google Drive slideshow lesson plan that gave a lot more detailed info on Georgia  O’Keeffe, but it also gave instructions to the students as they painted a watercolor painting of a still-life collection.

Once the students knew a little bit about Georgia O’Keeffe, they started to download public domain photos. The goal was to utilize the How to Trace Photographs in DrawCast tutorials that I made. The students would trace three photos similar to Georgia O’Keeffe’s subject matter: Animal Skulls, New Mexico Landscape and Flowers. Here is a collection of some of their work that they made in DrawCast.
