Sunflowers are the National Flower of Ukraine and represent peace and solidarity. Since the war began I was inspired to create a video tutorial on drawing and painting sunflowers. So, in the video workshop below, you’ll learn about the sunflower family as well as learning about their meaning to the people of Ukraine.

If you find this workshop inspiring, I encourage you to donate to one of the many organizations helping with the Ukrainian refugee crisis, such as World Central Kitchen.

Then I’ll lead you in a sketching and painting step-by-step demonstration in which you’ll finish a lovely painting of a sunflower fit for a gift!

Suggested Sunflower Workshop Materials: sketching pencils, watercolor set, sturdy paper, and then download the sunflower reference photos that you can use to follow along to the step-by-step demonstration. After you complete your drawing and painting I’d love to have you post it on social with the tag #SunflowersForUkraine to show your support.
