The 1/2 Combo teachers told me they were studying the seasons.
The students did a Styrofoam printing plate of a tree. They printed it four times.
Once finished, they used dots to paint the different seasons. Nice lesson that brought together Pop Art-Andy Warhol, Pointillism-Georges Seurat, and classroom curriculum.
Thiebaud is always a fun artist to study with his images of dessert.
For this lesson, students drew into presto-foam to create their dessert image. They used black ink and once dry, cut them out and placed them on a background of their choice. I love the different colors and images they used for the backgrounds. The flag is a favorite. The student told me it was called “The United States of Dessert”.
