Pumpkin Pastels

These next art projects were accomplished

by using oil pastels. These creamy "crayons" are not made with wax like conventional crayons. Oil pastels are highly blendable due to high content of oil present in each stick. The 2nd and 3rd grade students did a fine job of blending their yellows, oranges and reds into more realistic pumpkin pieces. They are, understandably proud of how these turned out.
