Painting flowers in Fourth Grade

Today a 4th grade class  used acrylic paints again to paint their flowers in their still life artworks.  I encouraged them to double dip paints and see the colors mix right as they painted. This prevented flat, all-one-color flowers. They also learned stippling on their posies. The students felt like advanced artists  while experimenting with color and texture! We were all pleased with the outcomes. Thanks to Patty Palmer for this inspiration.
