Art sub lesson, creative learning center, or station for early finishers ; this product is versatile.
It is based on the polka dot pumpkins of Yayoi Kusama. It could be used during the fall because of the pumpkins, but it certainly does not need to be taught then.
These are the things that are included:
--two photos of art by Yayoi Kusama with a brief description of her work
--a sheet with three sets of directions you may use in a creative learning center. (Cut out the one that applies to what you want the students to do.)
--a line drawing of a pumpkin that you may copy for each student or you may use as a model for the students to draw on their own
--a line drawing of a pumpkin with patterns that you may copy for each student or use as a model for step 2 of their drawing
--an example of the finished work
As a center activity, if you want the students to create the entire drawing on their own, supply the station with plain paper, pencils and crayons.
If you want the students to fill in the sheet with the pre-drawn pumpkin shape, make sure to include the copies of that drawing; pencils; and crayons.
If you only want the students to color the pre-drawn pumpkin that already has patterns, provide copies of that drawing and crayons.
If you want to teach this as an art lesson, you may print out the visuals to show the students up close, or you may project the images.
