Blunt Blowin 


I had my 2nd graders look at the work done by artist Wayne Thiebaud. Wayen Thiebaud was considered as a Pop Artist, who did many paintings of cake, and desserts. I talked about Form in Art, and how we were making 3-Dimensional objects. We made a sphere by rolling newspaper into a ball. I then taped some shiny gold borders around the sphere. The students then, put a layer of paper mache over their newspaper spheres. Once dry, I gave the students tempera paint to decorate their cupcakes. I had some red pom-poms for the “cherry” on top. The kids really liked it.
