During about the third week of school a lesson is presented on famous artist and individual artist are introduced along with lessons about things such as art mediums throughout the remainder of the year. This month we look at an artist from the country where we live, which relates to the lessons this month on North America. The artist Georgia O’Keefe is one that we learned about. We looked at some of her paintings and the children could choose to make a poppy flower. We found out she enjoyed painting big flowers and New Mexico landscapes.
The introduction to artist is found in Week 3 Day 5 of the curriculum pages and the lesson on painting mediums can be found in Week 12 Day 1.
As we continue with artist and different art mediums, recently pencil drawing was introduced. The children can choose to draw one picture by following the steps shown in the book. They can then choose to paint or color it and add a frame to their drawing.
