Kindergarten students are learning about Georgia O’Keeffe. After learning about her and her artwork, we began a simple drawing lesson with flowers. We used black crayon to draw our flower. I am trying to get students to not worry about mistakes and be more confident in their drawing ability. After drawing the flower and leaves, students moved on to paint. With the flowers I showed students how to blend from red to yellow on their petals.

When the painting was dry students cut out the flowers and leaves and glued them to construction paper.

2nd grade students just finished what started as drawing from observation. Each student was handed fake flowers to draw from. They ranged from daisies, sunflowers, and roses.  We discussed perspective, line quality, and details. Students practiced drawing their flowers in pencil on paper. I asked them to add a patterned background.

The next class we added watercolor to the pencil drawing. Last, we retraced the pencil with black tempera.
