pumpkin painting exploration

 The children in my class painted up wee pumpkins the week of Halloween. These were a work in progress for the week and had many stages of nifty going on.
We began with paint and paintbrushes. The children chose their colors and began painting. We stuck with one palette for each child as we were working on color mixing.
We discussed warm colors and cool colors.
I snapped these photos during the first round of paint. Love how the colors mix on the pumpkin itself.
Glitter was added then painted over then added some more.
Then the squeeze bottles came out and more exploration was had.
It's a bit of a beautiful mess isn't it?
