Mixed Media Self Portraits

Third grade artists drew their self portrait from observation and then added color using colored pencils and watercolor paint, as well as collage elements using magazines.

Dessert Paintings

Inspired by Wayne Thiebaud

Third grade artists looked at and discussed the work of artist Wayne Thiebaud, who likes to paint everyday things like food. We chose our favorite desserts and mixed a variety of different colors to paint them. We added details and a colorful shadow, inspired by Thiebaud’s use of shadow.
