Pumpkin Paintings

Today our students were budding artists.  They hand drew and then painted a pumpkin scene.  We worked step by step to create our artwork.  Buttercup and I were very impressed by the end results!

For this activity, first the students learned how to draw a pumpkin by connecting a C and a backwards C.  Then they added a stem and lines on the pumpkin and a horizon line to separate the ground and the sky.  After it was drawn, they traced over the pencil lines with a black crayon.

After the pumpkin was drawn, it was time to paint!  The students did a great job keeping in the lines as they painted.
