It's Ice Cream Time!

How can we use value to create 3-dimensional forms?

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.

Wayne Thiebaud, Two Jolly Cones, 1920

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

As a special treat Ms. Brown's 4th grade class will have their ice cream art on display 
at Richardson's from now until June.  
Stop by and see these talented young artists. What a good excuse to get an ice cream!

Take your picture eating an ice cream in front of your favorite work of art and send it to me.....
you might end up on my blog!
