Flowerpot Painting

Here’s a good first step for kids to learn how to to add some perspective to their drawings. Rather than make a flat profile drawing of a flower pot, have them start with an oval so their plants can “grow” right out of the dirt.
1. Students followed my drawing, starting with an oval in the middle of the paper, a pot shaped around it, and then flowers coming up from the middle.
2. The pencil drawing was traced with crayons, preferably dark ones.
3. The drawing was filled in with watercolor paint, in this case the liquid Dick Blick variety, but any colorful ones will do.
