4th grade - Pumpkins Close Up

I had a feeling our 4th graders would do an amazing job on these.

Good thing we painted them on canvas!

We started this lesson by painting the canvas orange. Rather than randomly brushing on the paint, students were encouraged to put thought into their brush strokes. You can see the brush strokes even when painting a single solid color. Notice how the orange strokes help inform the shape of the subject.

Check out those bold highlights!
