Afternoon Session- Sunflower fork painting

This afternoon we'd like you to have a go at creating a sunflower using paint and a fork. If you don't have access to paint, have a go at drawing sunflowers using colouring pencils, felt tips or whatever you have at home. 

Once you've tried this technique, you may wish to draw a field of sunflowers or try painting a different flower. Be creative!

Below you'll find a short video demonstrating the technique or a PDF file with instructions. We look forward to seeing your sunflowers. Have fun!
