Wayne Thiebaud: 2nd and 4th grade Tasty Treats

Hello My Amazing artists!

Are you ready for some treats? The fourth and second grades created projects inspired by the work of Wayne Thiebaud (who's birthday was this month).  They felt they should have gotten real ice cream and donuts for inspiration.

The fourth grade used oil pastels to create ice cream sundaes. They paid attention to light sources, shadows and how to blend oil pastels.

The second grade used a pool noodle to print donuts. They then used chalk to create shadows and frosting. It was messy, but don't they look delicious?

Third Grade Selfies

Hello My Amazing Artists!

The Third Grade just finished up these awesome selfies. They are cartoon versions of themselves and the whimsical details and expressions are priceless. They used bleeding tissue paper to add color, trying to use contrast to make the picture interesting.  I think they are so fantastic.
