"A Faithful Attempt" is designed to showcase a variety of K-12 art lessons, the work of my art students, as well as other art-related topics. Projects shown are my take on other art teacher's lessons, lessons found in books or else designed by myself.
Thanks for visiting!

Glue Line Watercolour Pumpkins


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!
