Remember the old song, “April showers bring May flowers?” Okay, it’s only January. And here in North Texas, everything is cold and brown. But that’s all the more reason to think in terms of drawing flowers. Today’s blog post is a collection of web pages and videos that will give you some resources on drawing flowers.
GARDEN DRAWINGS — This site has some easy projects that involve “garden drawings.” Not really a “how to” site, but it’s a great idea and younger children can easily adapt the idea for their own creations: http://bookzoompa.wordpress.com/category/garden-drawings/
HOW TO DRAW FLOWERS — This page has 9 different step-by-step tutorials for drawing different varieties of flowers. They’re all easy to follow and worth a look. http://www.hellokids.com/r_1962/drawing-for-kids/drawing-tutorials-step-by-step/flowers
HOW TO DRAW A ROSE — There are a lot (I mean a LOT) of ads on this page. Still, it’s a very nice step-by-step on how to draw a rose. A bit “stylized” perhaps (as opposed to realistic), but still it’s a nice tutorial. https://www.easypeasyandfun.com/how-to-draw-a-rose/
Here are some videos that you might find helpful. In the first one, See the Light’s Jim Pence demonstrates how to draw a daisy in pastel (chalk). Following is a super easy tutorial on drawing flowers that will be great for your younger children. Finally, we’ve got a more detailed video on “floral doodling” for the older students. Have fun!
For older children who are up for more of a challenge, here’s a video with twelve floral “doodles,” that will get them started on drawing more realistic looking flowers.
