Third graders took a look at the cupcake paintings by Wayne Thiebaud this week. We talked about the solid forms required to make a cupcake, the colors Thiebaud used, and began creating these cool works out of Crayola’s model magic.

In order to move from the art/math shapes to art/math FORMS or SOLIDS, i needed to find an artist that the kids would respond to – one that used solid shapes in his/her works and was FUN! Wayne was the man! Each grade level will be working on drawing and/or forming SOLID shapes based on the works of this artist. See some of his works here:
