The fifth graders just finished their 3-d paintings inspired by all things sugary sweet. After learning about sugar and the artist Wayne Thiebaud, the students created a sketch of something sweet that they love. After creating a sketch, I demonstrated how to use a paper pulp clay called celluclay. They then created a 3-D painting of their idea. They were able to incorporate other materials such as plates, eating utensils, acetate, wire sprinkles, candles etc. The projects are pictured below.
