This blog is dedicated to the students of Newmarket Elementary School. It displays the on-goings of our art class (or group studio), a creative sanctuary where N.E.S. students are able to experience making and analyzing amazing works of art!
Grade 1 students were introduced to the famous artist Georgia O’Keeffe. She was best known for her paintings of enlarged flowers that stretched off the canvas, and New Mexico landscapes featuring natural remains. First Grade students spent two weeks looking at and drawing O’Keeffe’s most well- known works, and then choose their favorite piece as inspiration and a base for their own watercolor paintings.
