Grey Line in Blue, Black, and Yellow
For Earth Week, one idea would be to buy REAL flowers (in a flat, enough for each child). The kids could draw them as the lesson plan describes, then afterwards, the flowers could be planted somewhere for the kids to see (outside the classroom window?!). The teacher would need to help get you permission, but wouldn't that be fun for them?
Georgia O'Keeffe, 1887-1986
The most famous woman painter of our time was Georgia O'Keeffe. She is best known for her dramatic paintings of gigantic flowers and sun-bleached desert bones. Early in her career O'Keeffe placed all the art she created in a room to evaluate it. She destroyed them all because she thought each work was derivative of someone else's style. She started all over hoping the art would reflect only herself. Over the years she won many awards and had several major one-person shows at Stieglitz's galleries and major museums. Despite deteriorating eyesight in her later years, she continued to paint and work with clay.
