Sunflower Still Life Drawing Lesson

Pick up a sunflower at the local market and you have an instant art lesson!   Sunflowers are great a subject mater for art projects!  Grab any medium, even just pencil and paper, and the students will soon realize how well they can draw from life!

  I explained to students that most people draw flowers from the front, but that it is important to see them from all angles.  I had the students sketch the sunflower from the front, the side, and the back.  After the student's are done sketching, we share what we observed and I compliment students who catch extra details.  It doesn't matter if the drawings look realistic.  The drawing accomplishes the goal if the students have demonstrated that they have made specific observations.
