Georgia's Bones

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

Celebrate Youth Art Month and the art of Georgia O'Keefe with this beautiful picture book.

Few artists are associated with the southwest more than Georgia O'Keefe. Her colors and themes express the feeling and stark environment of her adopted home, New Mexico. Now a new book presents Georgia O'Keefe's story in an accessible form for younger readers.

Georgia's Bones, by Jennifer Bryant and illustrated by Bethanne Anderson
Anderson expresses the beauty, grace, and fluidity of O'Keefe without simply mimicking them. Bryant tells of O'Keefe's fascination with natural shapes and items that others would over look or toss away. This book celebrates Georgia O'Keefe's desire to become an artist and her unique vision of the world.

Activities

You may want to coordinate with an art teacher for an art program.

  • Have samples of large flowers such as magnolias or sunflowers.
  • Using pencil create a drawing of a flower that extends to all sides of the page.
  • Using crayons color in the flowers giving them color and shading.
  • Instead of using crayons use watercolors.
  • An alternative method is to color the flowers with crayons and then wash over with water color. Choose color themes of warm or cool colors for both crayon and wash or select contrasting themes: Flowers of yellow and orange with a cool color wash of blue or green.
