“I decided I was going to begin to make drawings. I thought, well, I have a few things in my head that I never thought of putting down, that nobody else taught me and I was going to begin with charcoal, and I wasn’t going to use color until I couldn’t do what I wanted to do with charcoal or black paint.” Six months later O’Oeeffe picked up the color blue.
Discover Miss O’Keeffe, through a hands on approach as you explore her life and work. Walk the land, experience the sky breath in the expansive landscape. Begin by mimicking Miss O’Keeffe’s experiments of 1915 – using paper and charcoal – the class will explore line and form. The class will reflect on how O’Keeffe developed of her own unique style and lived her life in the context of Ghost Ranch.
What can we learn when we see Ghost Ranch through Georgia’s eyes? Georgia O’Keeffe’s time here will be investigated through historical, environmental, and culturally-critical lenses to reveal the lessons she uncovered throughout her life. Investigating what brought her to Ghost Ranch, what made her stay, and contextualizing her narrative to American history, can bring her unique narrative to the forefront of Modernism as a female painter. Her natural curiosity led her to many eclectic, far-reaching topics such as food psychology and gardening, while her innovative perspective, both personal and societal, reveals the gender roles of American society of the 20th century.
