Read the excerpt from "Georgia O'Keeffe: Modernist Pioneer." Over the summer break of 1915, Georgia went to South Carolina to st
udy at the Teachers College. There she studied the art theories of Arthur Dow, who was an expert in Far East art. He taught her abstract methods that were based on color, light and dark blocks, repetition, and balance. These ideas had a huge impact on her work, and she used new types of paints and other supplies rather than objects to show her feelings. It helped free her from the traditions that she found dull.
