Poppy Art

The children drew poppies from close observation using sharpies. They chose to draw many poppies or focus on the detail on one. Then using only reds, oranges & pinks, they added color to just the flowers. We wanted to create a contrast between the stark white paper and the bright colors. This was a reference to the red poppies growing in the battlefields.
