My fifth graders just completed these adorable pumpkins in the style of Romero Britto. I was inspired by this lesson from a pin I saw on Pinterest here. Because Britto is a Miami-based artist, this project hits a LOT of standards for teaching students about local artists!
What is also a fun tidbit of information is that Britto has the first "floating" art gallery...on Royal Caribbean's "Oasis of the Seas"! I love teaching students about Britto because all his work is identifiable to children, colorful, and seeminly simple! Once I show the students his work they usually recognize something.
Students also used their initials somewhere in their work as a graphic element.
These projects are quite large, 18"x18". Size matters ;)
Happy Fall, ya'all!
