Learn from Georgia O’Keeffe’s mastery of line to create dynamic, balanced, and structured artworks. In this class, participants will study O’Keeffe’s sketches and will practice using the element of line to define compositions. Finally, the class will use these skills to create watercolor paintings from memory using note-taking. 

This class is suitable for all levels. For beginners, this class will help to form a strong foundation in compositional design. More advanced students can use this lesson to enhance their practice by returning to the most basic element of art.

This class is suitable for youth ages 12 and up. Children are welcome to participate alongside their adults.

About the Instructor:

A passionate artist and experienced educator, Morgan Jones has spent the last 9 years developing these crafts. She seeks to explore how art can serve as a medium to move us both individually and communally. Her time teaching in public schools, juvenile detention, and community centers has deepened her belief that art is a fundamental means of knowing, connecting, and transforming. In addition to Fine Arts, Morgan studied Art Education at Texas State University as well as Criminal and Social Justice at the College of the Rockies in BC Canada. Morgan’s professional painting practice focuses on plein-air landscape assemblage and multiple exposure oil paintings that call into question ideas of impermanence, memory and conservation. After spending a year living on the road, developing her art from her mobile travel trailer studio, she has settled in Santa Fe to split her time between teaching and creating.
