Even though Spring is nowhere to be found where I live, I figured I'd post these charming daffodil paintings my Grade 3's made last Spring to get me in the mood.
I demonstrated how to draw one daffodil and then how to multiply them to create a bouquet in a vase. I gave my students the choice of drawing simply one (easier) and challenging my stronger students to draw a bouquet. They drew these in pencil on large heavy white paper.
Then they outlined them in Sharpie.
Finally, they painted these using watercolours. A simple two day project :)
