Art Studio with our Toddler Class: Flowers & Oil Pastel Crayons

Spring is here at CMP and we are learning about flowers at our Art Studio! Our toddler class had fun exploring with flowers and oil pastel crayons.

Ms. Mele read the book, “Flowers” by Usborne and the children learned about the lifecycle of a flower and why they help our environment. After, she explained to the children that they would recreate their own flowers that was handpicked throughout CMP. Then, they started coloring a variety of oil pastel crayons together and used the palms of their hands to blend them in to match the color of the flower that they received.
