Today we studied the artist, Wayne Thiebaud.
I referenced one book while introducing this artist to the children:
Wayne Thiebaud A Retrospective by John Wilmerding
When discussing this artist, we learned that Wayne Thiebaud liked to paint delicious things. The children identified cakes, popsicles and ice cream.
I showed them Thiebaud's "Green Gum Ball Machine" and
we set out to create our own.
We used sidewalk chalk to trace our circles onto our black canvas panels.
We painted the inside of our circles with white paint.
We applied small paper circles to the white (wet) paint to represent our gum balls.
When we were finished applying our paper circles, we painted a red base.
vocabulary: Wayne Thiebaud, circle, canvas, template, chalk, base
