Pumpkin Art

We learned about tints, shades, and layering all in one art project. We drew three pumpkins, colored the middle two sections in orange and then added white to the orange to tint the color for the middle, then we added black to the orange to make the shaded outside edges. We painted the background and then layered the pumpkins before gluing them on. Pretty cute for fall. I'm thinking they can stay up until Thanksgiving!
