So this is my 3rd year at this elementary school and I’ve finally gotten to the point where my kids know what I expect from them & they know their art vocabulary. This lesson’s vocab included words like blending, horizon line,  and background… it’s great to NOT have to explain what I mean to these kids on those particular words & that leaves more time for them to work on their projects! Sweet! Anyhoo, we discussed blending on the pumpkin – I demonstrated – and then they were on their own. It was up to them where their pumpkins would be placed – pumpkin patch, kitchen counter, sidewalk, yard, etc. This was a one day project… I loved the results – they were all so different – which is why I teach art and not math! 🙂
