Watercolor Pumpkins

October 12, 2010

Students taped off a 6″ square piece of watercolor paper onto a masonite board.  They loved the idea of making a white straight edge like a real artist.  After looking at a variety of pumpkins and discussing their characteristics, they used a black sharpie and drew several circles, added curved lines in their pumpkins, a grass line and stems and vines/leaves.  They used warm colors to fill in their pumpkins and pretty shades of blue and purple for the sky.  Once they finished painting, they carefully peeled off the masking tape…..Wow!  Oh my goodness!  Awesome!  The kids were amazed.  These really brightened up our hall space.
