Learn how to draw some simple roses that look like they are about to bloom. Young students can just draw lines inside to make the petal shapes, but older ones may be able to see a pattern.

This is also a good painting project as it’s so much easier to paint circles than tiny little petals. Try mixing in some hot pink and orange for an extra pop of color.

I wish I could thank the Flickr artist who thought this up, it’s certainly inspired quite a few art projects, just starting with this one.
