Art Appreciation Assignment: Georgia O'Keefe
Watch the following two short videos on artist Georgia O'Keefe, then answer these questions. 1. What style of art captured Georgia's interest after being frustrated in art school? What did she love about it? 2. How did she get her big break into the art world at a time when women artists were not taken seriously? 3. Georgia said, "I have been absolutely terrified every moment of my life, and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I've wanted to do." Share an example from your own life of something you did even though you were nervous or afraid to do it.
My answer to this question (Mrs. Pearson): I was afraid my art studio would fail and no one would want to pay for lessons and drive all the way out here. But I took the leap, spent thousands of dollars on renovating my basement and purchasing supplies, and prayed for God's favor on my business. It has worked out beautifully and I am so grateful I get to do something I love with people I enjoy (YOU.)
4. What was the name of the painting that brought the highest amount at auction ever for a women's painting? How much did it sell for?
