Still Life Flowers

To celebrate the spirit of Valentine's Day this year, my  7-12 year olds class painted these beautiful still life paintings of tulips.  Before we started painting, I gave the kids a simple demo, as I talked about trying to see the general lines, shapes, movement and direction of the flowers, rather than trying to created a perfect picture of what they see.  They then took to the sketching and paintings, and the results are so beautiful.  Each is so unique and really does reflect their personalities.  Enjoy! xo
