My 5th graders are working on organic shapes. They actually get the choice of one of two designs. The poppy picture or water lilies, which I will be sharing soon. The back ground is painted paper, where we use a scraping method with pressed cardboard. The poppies themselves are also painted paper. The flowers are detailed with a large black sharpie and yellow art sticks. After the stems and leaves are drawn, they use green 3-D paint to detail. This project took one class to paint paper, and another class to finish the poppy art.
