Digital Directed Draw: Pumpkin

Jack-o-lantern
 In celebration of Fall, Halloween, and harvest festivals, here's a digital directed draw that you can do with students using Google Drawing. If you've never done a digital directed draw with students, it's a fun way to introduce Google Drawing and various tips and tricks to students.  Most everything you can do in Drawing you can also do in Slides and Docs. Whenever I do Digital Directed Draws with students, I start by showing them a model of what we are going to create and explain that the objective is not to create, in this case, a pumpkin that looks exactly like mine but make it your own. I tell students that I'm going to make a very traditional pumpkin that's orange but if they want to make a purple pumpkin, that's great! This little pep talk ensures that you have individual creations through the classroom for maximum creativity.
