During a study over artist Wayne Thiebaud, fifth grade drew and cut out their own template of a donut. They then used their template to draw repeating and overlapping donuts to fill an entire picture plane. They added various details to their donuts. Their work was displayed in the hallways at Open House.
Third Graders had a mini measurement lesson during our study over artist Wayne Thiebaud. The had to measure four popsicles, two on each side, that were exactly five inches long. As a part of this lesson, we talked about symmetry and repetition. They then worked together to add white to various colors of tempera paint to make lighter tints to paint their popsicles. These were displayed as a part of Open House.
First Grade used pieces of cut paper to create ice cream cones inspired by artist Wayne Thiebaud. They folded a piece of construction paper in half and cut out a triangle shape thus creating two at once. They glued these onto a piece of paper folded in half vertically. They then cut various colored papers into small squares and rectangles. They glued this into rounded shapes on top of the triangular cones to create ice cream scoops. These were on display for their families to enjoy at our Open House.
While studying artist Wayne Thiebaud, Kindergarten drew ice cream cones filling the entire picture plane. They started by folding their paper in half vertically. They drew one ice cream cone with details and then had to repeat the exact same drawing on the right side. They then traced them with colored pencils and painted them with water colors. These were displayed for Open House as a part of our larger Wayne Thiebaud display.
