To begin today's project, the kids chose the color paper they preferred (either purple or blue). Then we took a moment to walk around the bouquet and see the arrangement from all sides. We noticed how what we saw changed as we moved. Each child has a unique view of the arrangement -- so all of the drawings would be different!
Beginning with pencil (and then tracing over in marker) the kids looked at the still life and then added the flowers and leaves that they saw.
After that, the kids added colors with oil pastels to complete their work!
We also finished our surprise gift for the teachers. You will see the beautiful gift that the class created at graduation!
