Pumpkins: Observational Drawings


An easy observational drawing project I do with my Grade 3's during October. I buy mini decorative pumpkins and place them on the tables around the room. Students draw these first in pencil on purple construction paper. I show them how to use curved lines to try to achieve a realistic drawing. Then they colour these with construction paper crayons. 
I also demonstrate how to add a highlight for an even more 3-D look. 
This took my students about two- 40 minute periods but some finished in one period.

Their classroom teacher is going to have them do some creative writing about their pumpkin and then we'll display the art + writing on the bulletin board together!
