Last Spring my wife asked me to help her design an easy art project for her second grade classroom. We decided it should be something to do with wildflowers. So I came up with design for a Large-flowered Trillium (Trillium grandilorum) that her students could color and assemble. When printed on a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper, this trillium is about life-size.
This year she asked for some more wildflowers. These wildflowers are going to turn a bulletin board into a spring forest. When picking which flowers to draw, I looked for ones that had a simple pattern so they would be easy to come up with a stylized design.
First up was a drawing of a Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis).
Next, I drew this grouping of Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum) leaves and flowers.
The third new wildflower was a Yellow Trout Lily (Erythronium americanum).
Finally, I drew this Wild Ginger (Asarum canadense).
Please feel free to print and use any of these coloring sheets.
