I've been doing quite a few multi-week projects the last month, so I have been remiss in posting. Sorry.
This project was done with all the kids in October, and took two sessions, so with my even/odd schedule it took a long time!
Since I've done Van Gogh sunflowers before, I wanted to do something different and involve more technique. The first step was to take some sunflowers in and have the kids "draw" with white glue! This is easy since I am using black paper. Once the glue dries it forms "lines" that the CHALK pastel does not stick. So basically the second week was a "fill in" project. The ones that turned out best use a lot of color and get good coverage.
