o'keeffe update (again)

I'm about to go set up one heck of a bulletin board...
Sadly, one that I am probably more excited about than my administration...

But with beauties like this, how can I resist?
I could do twenty blog posts about my fifth graders and their O'Keeffe flowers
(or so)...
I don't think there was a bad one in the bunch...
and I wish I had twenty bulletin boards!
This one is worth putting in the vault and saving for next year...

  3. Hey, these turned out great! Beautiful. The kids really did well at finding a good way to crop their designs.
    We are in the middle of ours (in 3rd grade) right now. We used oil pastels. Last years results are here.

  5. Joanna,
    These are such a fresh new perspective on O'Keeffe's blossom's. Did you use a dark paper background with chalk or oil pastel?

  6. YES! We used black paper and oil pastels. I love the effect and vibrant color you get when you use pastels on dark paper! Thanks for stopping by!
