2nd Grade Pumpkins (and Sunflowers).

I brought in some pumpkins for life drawing lesson. They get pretty excited about having the real thing there to draw. The assignment for 2nd grade was to draw the pumpkins, add a horizon line, and a background of their choice. Then, they needed to paint their work using realistic colors. However, I also happened to have sunflowers in my room for another class so gave them the choice to add the sunflowers to their picture.

About a week ago, I brought in real sunflowers for my classes to draw from life. Kindergarten talked about the shapes they seen in the real sunflowers and in Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. Then, they were able to draw and paint their own!

I posted some last week, this is a sample of more sunflowers:
