Primary Popsicles

Primary Popsicles

  
I found this awesome lesson for my 2nd graders over at Mrs. Knight’s Smartist Artists. We reviewed pop art and Wayne Thiebaud with this and then reviewed the color wheel and color mixing. We also watched Scratch Garden’s video The Color Song. 

We had our discussion and painted the paper in the first class with the primary colors for the Popsicles. 

  
Then the second class was spent creating the background with secondary colors and then making the Popsicles. We were just barely able to get all those steps in on the second day.

New and Improved: Pop Art Pastries!

Standard

I usually do a lesson on Wayne Thiebaud and his great diner and bakery-inspired art.  I love the clean look and the bright colors of his paintings.  This year, I found a different take on the lesson over at Artolazzi and we are going to give it a whirl.  I can’t wait to turn my bulletin boards into a cupcake display! I did do the cupcakes with one of my second grades but then decided to do a different Thiebaud project with each class.
Here’s what we’ve been working on!

Pop Art Pastries

I am a lover of all things sweet, so one of my favorite artists is Wayne Thiebaud (pronounced “Tee-bo”) and his super sweet artwork. I came across this blog post about his artwork coming to life
and was further inspired by Kathy Barbro’s post about her students creating Thiebaud artwork.
My student’s enjoyed seeing his artwork and loved creating their own as well!
