Pumpkin Pastel Still Life

The high school did this project recently so I gave it a try.  Pastels really aren't my thing so I needed the practice.
I like trying the projects the students are doing, it's good practice for me now that I have no art classes.  I should be doing more on my own but just never seem to have the time - need to make the time to do some little things to keep sharp.

By Request...Ramone Pumpkin

My son requested I carve Ramone from the Cars.  He also made it clear it had to be a side view with flames.  Not the best choice.

Fillmore from The Cars Pumpkin is DONE!

I said I would and I did.  Started by painting the entire pumpkin green last night.  Finished about 2:00 this afternoon.

I used apples for the tires attached with bbq skewers.  The hardest part was painting the artwork on the side -my pumpkin was not an ideal shape for this project.  I really shouldn't have carved him out but my son wanted it to light up.

Just hope it makes it to Halloween.

The face doesn't look much like Fillmore -it doesn't have his character.  Should have done something over his eyes for a visor but didn't want to take the chance of spoiling him.

More Student Teaching Projects

The seventh grade is working on a still life.  I figured I'd give it a try.  Have to admit my drawing with pencil is a bit rusty.

Some Art Projects The Students Have Been Doing...and me too

Kindergarten did scarecrows at night and day

6th grade did a weaving project

5th grade is working on water color sea scapes

3rd Grade is working on Picasso Monsters      

It has been a very busy week of student teaching K-12 each class is working on something different.  I am trying to do up the projects as they do them so I will have examples of them for the future.

Student Teaching

Just finished my first student teaching placement where I was working with 7-12 grade students.  I had so much fun and learned so much. 
I enjoyed working with the supervising teacher and all of the students and will miss them all very much.

Hope to be back to work with you all again in the future.
