Masterpiece Monday---Georgia O'Keefe

Our last artist of the year was Georgia O'Keefe.  We learned Georgia O'Keefe lived in New Mexico.  We learned about deserts and desert animals.  We used tissue paper and construction paper to create a desert sunset.

The previous week the children had cut out a saguaro cactus so these were ready glue on the completed canvas.  We placed strips of tissue paper on the table.  The children were instructed to glue a line across the canvas and place the tissue paper on top. 

Beautiful colors!

The children glued on their cactus.  Teachers put a diluted glue wash over the entire canvas. 

Teachers trimmed excess tissue for a stunning result. 

For Fun Food Friday we had Cactus Candy. Yummy!
