Pop Art Donuts 🍩 Wayne Thiebaud

Students learned about American artist Wayne Thiebaud and his contribution to the Pop Art movement. Students created paper mache donuts inspired by the paintings of Thiebaud. Then students did a observational drawing of their donut. As a pre- assessment Students were not given any direction on their drawing, simply to draw what they see.

Later I demonstrated how to draw a still life using appropriate perspective and proportion and guided the students through their drawing. Students developed skills in blending and shading using oil pastels. Students were amazed by their drawing and how much their artistic skills progressed. Students were then asked to reflect on the project and their progression.

Just having fun decorating our donuts 🍩
