3D O'Keeffe

Ms. Franko's students were inspired by the art of Georgia O'Keeffe and her unique style of zooming in on flowers. They observed flowers and drew a large scale sketch as their base. Students then explored coiling techniques with modeling clay to emulate the shape and symmetry of their flower.
