1st Grade Oil Pastel Pumpkin Patch Drawings

FINALLY we have finished our first project in 1st grade!!!  Our oil pastel pumpkin patch drawings are now complete!  This is a project I blogged about last year and we followed the same procedures as last year, which you can read about in this post.

On the first day, we did two pumpkin drawings....the first was for students to show me how they drew pumpkins and the second (on the back side of the paper) was where I showed them how to draw more realistic pumpkins.

On the second day, we talked about depth and using multiple horizon lines.  We also talked about size.  We drew our pumpkin patch with fall details using white oil pastels and then started to color them in.  We used the third day to finish coloring these.

Coming up next will be a skeleton project for the Day of the Dead (which also links to the NYS Common Core Listening & Learning strand about the human body in 1st grade!).
