Georgia O'Keefe inspired Watercolor Paintings- 3rd Grade

Kids love painting flowers in the spring!  With the sun finally shining outside of the classroom, this project seems perfect to do!  Each student gets a flower of their choice.  We start by painting the inside of the flower and working our way out.  We go over how to use watercolors correctly.  I love not using a pencil to draw the flower first- it is great practice and such a confidence booster to just jump in with the watercolors!  The paintings are stunning!
