The JK class just finished a multimedia still life drawing. Along with the Van Gogh-inspired plaster flowers, students observed and drew vases of flowers. Each bouquet of flowers featured one large sunflower. Students outlined their drawings with black glue, glued sunflower seeds to the center, and colored the drawings with construction paper colored pencils. Do you know about these? They are fabulous and my favorite colored pencils. They need to be sharpened about 1,000x more often than regular colored pencils, but sometimes, for the right project, they’re worth it.
