Mile High Watercolour Ice Cream Cones



My younger students made these watercolour ice cream cones while learning about the art of Wayne Thiebaud.  Using a template the kids created their ice cream towers, with most adding a cherry on top as the finishing touch.  The kids then picked their ice cream flavours, thinking about what colours would work best for each flavour. 

The kids used watercolours in tubes, and I gave them only a small amount of each colour, so that their resulting artworks would have areas of light and dark.  Once dry, the kids used black sharpies to finish their ice cream cones, outlining and in some cases adding waffle cone detailing.
