Summertime means ICE CREAM

I've been having fun doing ice cream art with my students..........
My 2nd/3rd Grade combo class each did an acrylic ice cream painting, then I put them onto a blue painted canvas for our auction last weekend.  The kids loved seeing their art mounted with together with their classmates!  Thanks to all my blogger friends for all the great auction art ideas.  I did a different project with every class and somehow can only find pictures of this one.  (Did I really not take pictures of the others?  At this time of the year, everything seems to be going at lightning speed and I have no idea if I took pics or not right now.)

And here are the Ice Cream painting my high schoolers did on canvas with acrylics.  The inspiration was Wayne Thiebaud.  First they painted a vibrant background, then the ice cream cone, and another background.  I tried to encourage them to leave a colored halo around the subject and some of the vibrant colors showing when painting the new background, but some got carried away and covered up all their original background colors.  Oh well, it was still a fun project.

This was 1st step, painting vibrant background.
