Pumpkin paintings in 5th grade

We are getting excited in our community about an upcoming art show at the High Museum in Atlanta - the Infinity Rooms show by Yayoi Kusama! My fifth graders and learning about her style, like her love of dots, her clothes that match her works, and her love of pumpkins.
We made our pumpkin paintings by first observing some natural pumpkin forms and drawing the contours. Next, we selected a color scheme of analogous or complementary colors and set to painting. Last, we cut out our pumpkins and made a background.
