Inspired by how many picture books have been written about Vincent van Gogh and about sunflowers, the junior kindergartener’s continued with their sunflower theme by making sunflower sculptures! They started with plaster gauze, and laying out the petals on a piece of wax paper. The stem was made by wrapping the plaster gauze around a straw. The plaster flowers were left to dry and harden over bowls, to give them their curved shape. Today, the students came and painted their flowers!
