Pastel Desserts - inspired by Wayne Thiebaud
As part of our study of Wayne Thiebaud we also produced some very yummy looking desserts and gumball machines out of chalk and / or oil pastels.
Sometimes I love having a loose theme and just letting the children make their own decisions on what to draw, what medium to use and what colour paper to use. I had out both oil and chalk pastels and although you wouldn't think of them going together, it actually worked. Children could also choose white or black paper and had the option of cutting out their picture and placing it on the opposite colour.
I really think they captured Wayne's style, especially the ones with the shadows.
Well done - these are good enough to eat!
