Pumpkin Fiesta!!

Check out these adorable nigh time pumpkins that my kindergarteners are finishing up. We worked on some observational drawing using my foam pumpkins as models and then "brushed" up on our color mixing by using only primary colors to paint the leaves and pumpkins. On day two we cut out and glued down the grass, pumpkins and leaves. Using oil pastels the moon and stars were added and the highlight (we called it pumpkin sparkle too) to show how the moon reflected off the pumpkins. I can't help but think that the Great Pumpkin will rise right behind one of these beauties!! Thanks to the Deep Space Sparkle, the blog that gave me the idea. These will look amazing at the November Art Show!!

This one is in a really windy patch!
