Year 3 Close Ups

Georgia O'Keefe inspired art!

I can see why this lesson has been done many times, it is a real gem that produces very effective art pieces. 

During this term, year 3s have been learning about creating depth and distance in landscape style arts works. This lesson, we learned that images that are closer have more detail/colour then images that are further away. We used glue and soft pastel. Students chose an image that were found in nature. Students experimented with colour combinations on a scrap paper. A tip was to blend 3 or more colours together. Students also chose background colours that would compliment their close up image.

  1. Your students interpreted the artist work beautifully. Very creative using glue to define the lines.
