Start by discussing primary and secondary colors and ask students to distinguish between the two. You can also talk about color families and have them practice drawing spirals before starting on their project.
- Choose a flower shape and draw in pencil a large version of it, taking up most of the paper.
- Using bright colors, fill in the flower image. Be creative – flowers can be any color!
- Carefully color in the background with a contrasting color.
- Optional – outline the flower in a dark color.
- Print name legibly on the front of the paper (at least an inch from the edge so the name will not be cut off).
