The fall is a perfect time to explore color, texture, creativity.
We explored texture with plate rubbings in our overlapping leaves paintings. They are a favorite because of their warm and cool colored beauty. Though given similar instruction, each is unique which is the best part of art!
Younger classes worked on creating pumpkins using shading techniques to create form. Students had a good time learning how to draw more realistic pumpkins, but they had an even better time creating the jack-o-lanterns expressions. From silly to scary the pumpkins are all full of FUN.
