Fall Landscape Artwork with Acrostic Poems

Looking for a fall art project that stills helps build writing skills? My students love creating acrostic poems so we paired them with these fall landscape art projects for the perfect classroom hallway display!

Hey y’all, happy fall! If you follow me along, you would know I’m slightly obsessed with fall time. I also love taking pictures of fall leaves and trees. See, slightly obsessed! Last year we did a art project similar to this one but I decided to add in another step with the glue outline and the acrostic poems!

Last week we worked on the first part of artwork with creating Acrostic Poems using the word “Pumpkin”. You can read all about that here and purchase my acrostic poem pack here! Now onto the art!

Step One:

Create landscape (including a pumpkin) in pencil. I taught students shapes of different things found in a landscape on the board before letting them go to their own papers. They should be large shapes/objects so they can fit the pastels within them!

Step Two:

Outline pencil lines with white glue. I modeled for my kiddos. Some had some had trouble with the squeezing of the glue. We had to practice on some paper towels to help with that.

Step Three:

Find a SAFE area for them to dry. I had them keep them on their tables because moving them would cause the glue to shift.

Step Four:

After the glue is completely dry,  model blending layers of colors in the sections of glue.

Step Five:

Using your finger, blend the colors in. I had them have a extra paper towel for their fingers.

Step Six:

Fill in all the sections with pastels, keeping the background dark!

Mount with their Acrostic Poem and enjoy their masterpieces!

My kids absolutely loved getting messy with the pastels and making these beautiful fall landscapes. They turned out so well and we will definitely be doing this project next year! I hope you can use this in your classroom as well!
