Here’s an idea for a cute spring drawing or painting. Three very simple birds that are stacked on each other, with the highest one looking at a pretty flower. As always, few crayon details added before painting adds some extra fun to the art.
For beginning of the year guidance lesson, would probably use something besides a flower. Each student paints a flower. Cut each flower into quarters. Rearrange them and glue them to a board with matte medium.
