Welcome to Dream, Draw Create!
This blog features art projects for children. These projects have been used in my classes. My lessons allow children to learn about all the elements and principles of art while striving to introduce them to many genres of art.

Van Gogh inspired Sunflowers

A colleague once told me "keep it simple stupid".  I jumped into the school year with a project far too complex for our first lesson.  I came back this week with a simpler approach that was quite refreshing for me and the students.
Each table had a still life set up for the students to observe and draw from.  Sharpies were used to outline the pencil drawing, lastly watercolor paint was applied to complete the project.
Here is lower elementary's interpretation of Van Gogh's Sunflower's.
