Pumpkins and Jack-O-Lanterns

This past week in art, we learned how to draw pumpkins to celebrate the beginning of Fall and the spooky season. We began by examining a real pumpkin to take note of texture, form, and color. Right off the bat, many of the students observed that no pumpkin is perfectly round or smooth, and like snowflakes and people, no two pumpkins are alike.

Many pumpkins evolved to jack-o-lanterns, some into hooded pumpkins, and even vampire pumpkins made their appearance during this demonstration.
