For this project, we began by talking about faces and their features. We then transitioned into faces on jack-o-lanterns. I showed them some examples on the board of how to make one look happy, sad, scary, silly, etc... We then drew our jack-o-lanterns on 8"x8" squares of watercolor paper using orange and yellow crayons. The class then used dark watercolors (black, blue, purple) to paint over the face. They were so amazed by how the crayon created a resist. They all turned out very neat, as they showed such good contrast and made the pumpkins seem to glow.
