Prismacolor Flowers for Beginning Art

Sixth grade art students are capable of amazing things. They are so willing to try and they soak up instruction like brilliant artistic sponges. For this project, each student selected a photo of a flower or plant, and then they made sketches of of image in their journals. Next, students practiced enlarging the image to twice its size while still keeping the same proportions and textures as the original. Finally, we transferred the image to colored Canson paper and after several Prismacolor training sessions, students began adding color to the images. The results are amazing and the beginning art students were very proud.
