Flower Power



  • Paper
  • Paint (semi-moist watercolor or tempera paint)
  • Markers
  • Flowers
  • Calendars or floral paintings by artists like Georgia O’Keefe


  1. Choose a flower shape and draw in pencil a large version of it, taking up most of the paper.
  2. Using bright colors, fill in the flower image. Be creative – flowers can be any color!
  3. Carefully color in the background with a contrasting color.
  4. Optional – outline the flower in a dark color.
  5. Print name legibly on the front of the paper (at least an inch from the edge so the name will not be cut off).
