first few photo's are of the kids drawing and carving their
pumpkins using the techniques that I showed them.
learned very quickly and were carving a full day (week) earlier
than I expected them too.
finished carving a full day quicker than expected.
this, we had a very warm October we started to see pumpkins
beginning to rot very quickly.
UP! We got some new pumpkin, as needed, and the kids dove
right in to do new carvings if their original pumpkin had rotted.
picked up the technique very quickly. Some had to work at it
a bit more but got it by the end.
nice to be able to spread out around the court yard and get
comfortable as we carved.
some of the results! These kids should be proud of
themselves. They all did a great job! This pumpkin was
from a pattern.
This is an
example of a free-hand pumpkin. Simply wonderful!
pattern (sorry for the blur). Truly shows that not all
carved pumpkins have to be about ghouls and goblins!
ultimate irony. Carved pumpkins carved into a pumpkin!
provides a personal touch to her "October" pumpkin
of this pumpkin (I refrain from using names on this site) had done
this pumpkin only to have it rot to ashes. Undaunted, she
redid this (better the second time) in ONE session! Total
free-hand and simply incredible.
effective, the sun and moon. I love it!
Of all the
rotted pumpkins, this one attracted the most attention. It
could not have rotted in a more ghoulish manner! ick!
the pumpkin that I did for the Depot Farm Stand as a special thank
you for their donations and price breaks for all the pumpkins we
used in this class. If you happen by the Depot Farm Stand
this holiday season, be sure to thank them for all their help!
