Fifth Grade learns about American Artist Wayne Thiebaud

After a slide presentation of Wayne Thiebaud's paintings, students discussed how he used repetition, variety and a horizon line in his dessert artworks. I brought out a real gum ball machine as well as pictures of his gum ball painting. Their first drafts of observation sketches are quite good. They really worked on drawing what they see, not what they think they see. More to come!
