Draw a Watercolor Flower Garden




Flower Garden Drawing Guide Spring or Summer Art Lesson for Kids using Watercolor Resist Method

Who doesn’t love an easy project?

This one Watercolor Flower Garden is as easy as you can get. All you need is a small sheet of watercolor paper, black waterproof marker, a white crayon and a few colors of liquid watercolor paint.

Step 1:

Children draw a series of flowers to make a garden. The flowers don’t have to be complex…just a few simple circles with petals is all you need. You can download a drawing guide that will generate ideas quickly or you can have each child create their garden from their imaginations.

Step 1 Watercolor Flower Garden

Step 2:

After drawing with a black marker, outline each flower and the leaves with a white oil pastel or white crayon. This helps define the flower shapes even more.

Step 2 Watercolor Flower Garden

If a child wishes to have an area of the art stay white, encourage him to color the area our shape with the white crayon.

Step 3:

Now for the fun part….dab, brush and dribble liquid watercolor paints over the entire drawing. No need to stay within the lines!

Step 3 Watercolor Flower Garden

Here’s a video to show the process…

    I love using your easy lessons for fundraisers. The students feel successful. The parents love to buy and display them in their homes. I love teaching them because they don’t eat up a lot of time, but still cover standards.
