Open Studio from Home: Georgia O’Keeffe

SAT, Dec 19, 2020, 11–11:40 am, Online, via Zoom, Families with kids of all ages

You are invited to Open Studio From Home, free weekly online art classes with Whitney Educators! Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.

Georgia O’Keeffe was inspired by the open skies, mountains, and deserts of New Mexico. In Summer Days, O’Keeffe painted these natural souvenirs that she had collected from the landscape. As she explained, “The bones cut sharply to the center of something that is keenly alive in the desert.”

This week, we will gather our own souvenirs from around our homes and create a postcard inspired by our surroundings!
