Assignment 2: Color Garden (Early Years)

Assignment 2: Color Garden

Make sure each table has markers, pencil crayons, wax crayons, and drawing paper.

Step 1: Inform students that today we will be creating a rainbow garden using different types of flowers. Ask students to think about the parts of a flower and how petals come in different shapes. Review the rainbow order: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
Step 2: Look at pictures of different flowers or bring in flowers from home.

Step 3: Discuss artists who use flowers in their work and show examples of their artworks.

Step 4: Before students begin, go over assignment guidelines. Students will draw at least six flowers. Remind students to outline their flowers the best they can, color neatly, and remember to write your name.

Step 5: Students will begin drawing the parts of their flowers.

Step 6: Add lots of color!

Step 7: Write, share and turn in. Name check, write 1-2 sentences about artwork on the back, if time students will share with class.
