Pumpkin Landscapes

In Art class, 4th graders learned the different parts of a landscape; foreground, middleground, background and horizon line. Then they learned how to create depth in their artwork by drawing three different size pumpkins. Students then used the local artist Holly Hebel’s work as inspiration as they colored their pumpkin landscapes. Students worked really hard shading their pumpkins to show roundness.


  1. I have done pumpkins as still life for the last few years, using glue outlines and pastels. It is the best lesson I have found that helps the students learn to make an object looking round I like the idea of putting them in the landscape. These are really cool.

  2. Is there a lesson plan for this art landscape!!??
