when you have markers! I’ve tried this technique on my there’s no right way to paint a flower project. I forgot how beautiful the results can be.

The beauty of art is there are no rules. There’s no right or wrong.

I wanted watercolors and paintbrushes. I was gathering supplies wishing I had an art cart. I could roll from class to class. And, there was how can I teach art without my favorites? Hello, you’re an artist! You’re creative. Collage with construction paper? I can use construction paper instead of my usual paint! I’m going to upload the video on my Pinterest page. The students’ ideas are a reminder that you don’t need fancy tools. You just need one idea. One idea leads to another watercolor paper towel flower. I’ll be posting a video on the watercolor paper towl flower. I can’t wait to see what the students will come up. It’s going to be beautiful.

To make your own flower

Use your markers to scribble and draw on a paper towel. Add a little water. Let it dry. Cut your shapes and glue. I can’t wait to see what the flowers will look like!
