Sunflower still lifes, 1st grade

Vincent Van Gogh's sunflowers are my go-to for teaching still life in first grade each year - also part of my Nouns in Art unit. We started with watercolor for the background and smoothed out our brush strokes. Next, we switched to liquid tempera and made bold strokes like Van Gogh. A couple of classes added some oil pastel strokes as well. Each and every one is a lively, colorful success!
I have a lesson plan for the still life and the Nouns in Art in my Teachers Pay Teachers store if you'd like to try it!
