Flowers painted by students make a unique class art project

Every year we are asked to make a project or two that can be auctioned off during our fundraising events.  This year I wanted to make a project that showcased the individuality of each of my students yet that looked beautiful when assembled together.

I began by giving each of my kids a 5x5 inch piece of white card stock.  I put out different colors of paint and asked each child to pick a color and paint a small circle in the middle of the paper.  From there they painted petals and more circles and anything they wanted to make a flower as unique as they are.

After the flowers dried, I used a fine point sharpie to write their name on the edge and then I cut them out.  I got a big piece of black mat board and arranged the flowers as if they were sitting in a vase.  I cut a simple vase out of scrapbook paper and attached it to the mat board along with the flowers.  I kept the backgrounds dark so the flowers would pop out.

Look at how beautiful and unique each flower is!  The kids had so much fun making them!

Needless to say, the art project was a hit and fetched a pretty penny at the auction.  There was a bidding war but now it is hanging on one lucky home to be enjoyed for years to come.
