It's Ice Cream Time!!

4th Graders are getting their scoopers out just in time for Spring! Students learned about American pop artist Wayne Thiebaud and his use of pale colors, value, and a popular subject matter.

4th grade artists then applied these concepts to their own ice cream inspired art work.  Students mixed different tints of their color to create dimension and form.  I was so impressed with the final products!!

4th Grade Owl Paintings

4th grade artists experimented with a black glue resist technique.  Student designed their compositions and outlined all details in black glue.  When the glue dried they used watercolor to bring their works to life with vibrant colors and details.
