Kindergarten Pumpkins

Kindergarten artists spent two classes working on these pumpkin collages. The first class we learned about mixing colors. We used red and yellow liquid water color paint. We painted  our entire 9x12 paper orange by mixing red and yellow together. After letting these dry, we discussed how shapes are used in art to draw things. We used triangles, ovals, squares and circles in our collages. We used lots of different colored construction paper, cutting them into different shapes to create our expressive pumpkin portraits.
