Preschool Pumpkins

I have a couple of groups of 4 year old preschool students. Some of them were in class with me last year. For this lesson, I started with the group that has 9 returning art students. They are a very capable group and created some amazing art last year.

I directed the students in drawing a pumpkin: A BIG circle with curved lines (or “c’s” as the kids pointed out) and a stem.

They drew a horizon line and then they painted with orange and yellow paint.

Once the pumpkin was finished, they painted the sky blue and the ground gree-though they could have painted it brown if they wanted to.

I knew they were very capable. They really created some amazing pumpkins.

This is one of my favorites. This child created a crook necked gourd that he saw on the pumpkin patch field trip the class took the day before. I LOVE this kind of creativity!

And this little child came in a few minutes late but still managed to create an awesome pumpkin!
