Preps looked at real flowers (that I hand picked on my walk to school) and drew what they saw using permanent marker. We looked at the different lines and shapes we could see in the flowers and leaves.
Next, we used bleeding tissue paper and sharpies to add colour to our art work. We talked about having a balance of colour on our page (I only gave 10 minutes of colouring using sharpies). Students had fun creating different colours by overlapping the tissue paper.
