2nd Grade Pattern Pumpkins

The 2nd grade classes had a fun time pushing their drawing skills one step further this week by creating these darling pattern pumpkins. First, we looked at real pumpkins and studied the shape and color. We touched the pumpkins, looked for scars and studied the stem. Then we used sharpies to draw a practice pumpkin in our sketchbook. We drew organic "bumpy" lines with the sharpie and then we added structure lines. Finally we added shading with organic and geometric design. Then we drew our final artwork on bigger paper. We shaded the features of our pumpkins with tiny pattern and design. As a final step, we painted our pumpkins with watercolor. This has been one of our favorite projects.
