Tips for Kids to Draw BIG
- Tell them the flower feel off right off the paper! This was such a cute suggestion!
- Students MUST touch all 4 sides of the paper with their object
- Give several examples and non examples of what is the right size and what isn’t
- Give students many different examples of TYPES of flowers to ensure variety
- Review the word OVERLAPPING and talk about how petals overlap
Using the rules listed above, have the students draw a flower in pencil then outline it in Sharpie.
After students outline with Sharipe, have them define some parts with colored watercolor markers, wc crayons or wc pencils. Then, have the students fill in the spaces with watercolor paints. If students choose a cool color for the flower, have them to do a warm background. If they choose a warm colored flower, suggest a cool background. This lesson can be used to review warm and cool colors for the students.
