Flower Stained Glass, 3rd grade

I did these near the beginning of the school year with my 3rd graders. The idea was to create a stained glass window with a wilted flower motif. I can not take complete credit for this project. I found it on one of my favorite websites, http://www.mrsbrownart.com/4th.htm. It is inspired after the wilted flower and stained glass windows in Beauty and the Beast.

Here are the basic directions:

1. Show students how to draw a wilted flower (I chose to show them a sunflower)

2. color it in with oil pastels (you could also have them paint it)

3. Use a ruler and a black crayon (or marker) to draw straight lines behind the flower

4. Paint the rest of the picture with watercolors

I think these are wonderful!!!
