Meet the Artist Georgia O'Keefe: Focus on the Particular

  • Heatherwood Community 9642 Burke Lake Road Burke, VA, 22015 United States (map)

In this 90-minute class, we will explore the work of one of the most well-known female American artists of the 20th century.  An eclectic and prolific artist who painted up until just a few weeks before her death at age 98, O’Keeffe used vivid hues and natural forms focusing on the details of her subjects.  The class will begin with a 20-minute power-point lecture contrasting O’Keeffe’s New York cityscapes with her later paintings largely of the New Mexico landscapes and the delicate internal parts of over-sized flowers.  A 50-minute practicum will follow the lecture.  As a group we will produce a copy of an O’Keeffe painting, replicating her fascination with flowers.  Upon completion of our paintings, we will participate in a 20-minute critique of our work. All supplies are included.
