Veggie Painting

Vegetables-in-ground 700I found this idea for painting vegetables over at If anyone would like to take credit for creating it, please let me know. I’ve painted plant roots before, but never colorful vegetables – it’s a great idea.

1. On watercolor paper, students draw in pencil a horizontal line across the middle of the page. They add a variety of underground vegetables below (carrots, beets, scallions, etc.) and stems and leaves above.


2. All pencil lines are traced with a crayon, pressure is needed to create dark lines.


3. The vegetable shapes are painted in with watercolor paint. When complete, the ground, leaves and sky are painted as well.
