Here's this years version of a very popular Halloween project I first posted about 10 years ago. See the original post HERE. I've seen versions of my adapted lesson floating all around different blogs since then; even on Teachers Pay Teachers with no credit to my blog.... frustrating.
As I mentioned in my original post:
These were inspired by a 2005 lesson from Arts & Activities magazine called "Glue, Hue and Contour, Too" by Art teacher Paula Guhin. Her original lesson involved drawing plants from observation- I've simply changed it to pumpkins for Fall.
See- not hard to give credit!!
Start drawing directly with white glue.
Let dry overnight. Outline the glue line with fine tip sharpie.
Erase mistakes with hand sanitizer!
Paint with watercolour- must include shading. I let my students choose which type of watercolour they want to use (pan, liquid or pencil). Most choose pan.
Some finished Grade 7 - 9 examples!
