Pretty Plump Pumpkins


I found this idea at Artsonia, taught by Linda Welling at Cedar Creek Elementary. She said she used chalk pastels but I chose to use oil pastels. They seem to be less messy and I didn’t want to cause any asthma attacks! We used black paper and sketched with pencils before drawing with glue. The next class period, we colored in the pumpkins, avoiding the glue. They were required to use at least three shades of orange on their pumpkins. Here is the link to her museum page at Artsonia.
I’ll add another picture when I can get more pumpkins hung up!
