In Mexico, these beautiful flowers are grown for man celebration. We created these delightful blooms using: oil pastels, painted paper, tempera paint, and construction paper.
1. Students first created the vase shape, then added monochromatic (tints and shades of one color) oil pastels to the vase. Students chose 1 geometric shape then rotated the monochromatic colors of oil pastels.
2. Students then painted stems with tempera paint in light green and dark green above the vase.
3. The marigolds were created using painted paper. Circle templates were used to make the shape, FYI – cutting the edge of the circle gives the look of petals. Add painted coffee filters or tissue paper for the centers of the flowers.
4. Leaf shapes were drawn on the back of previously painted paper, cut out, then glued down. Oil pastels details were added to the painted paper side.
Glorious, fun and cheerful!
Keep on Creating!
