Students and families created artwork together during the first Family Art Night of the school year.
The sunflower paintings were created using tempera paint and oil pastels.
First, we drew a vase filled with sunflowers. It was great to see the sunflowers depicted in all stages of life from a bud to a wilted bloom. The students also used the provided artificial sunflower still-life to view sunflowers from a variety of angles.
Next, we used oil pastels to trace our drawing. We also colored the background using blue and white oil pastels.
Finally, the painting began! It was wonderful to see the variety of work created by students of various ages and ability levels.
I'm so proud of these paintings! They are all very unique.
