• Today I will learn about BALANCE and FORM so that I CAN create a 3-DIMENSIONAL cake that is the same on both sides.
Students will learn about Pop artist, Wayne Thiebaud, and his cheerful paintings of sweets. They will plan their cake slice using a variety of resources, including images and their Kindles. Next, they will use a template and cardboard to create the armature and add joint compound to create the texture of frosting. Students will paint and have the opportunity to use sprinkles and air dry clay to add to their sculpture. Upon completion, students will upload their artwork to Artsonia, along with an artist statement.
