Georgia O'Keeffe

November 15 is the birthday of artist Georgia O'Keeffe.  Ms. O'Keeffe was born in 1887 in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. She is considered one of greatest American painters of the 20th century.

If you want to find out more about her, try one of these books from the juvenile collection:
Georgia in Hawaii by Amy Novesky
Georgia Rises by Kathryn Lasky
Through Georgia's Eyes by Rachel Rodriguez
Wideness and Wonder by Susan Rubin

If you like a little math along with your art, try this:  If Ms. O'Keeffe was still alive today, how old would she be?  (Hint -- she was born in 1887 and this year is 2013.)
