This is the same clay lesson I used with 5th grade last year. (View the original post here). We talk about Pop Art focusing on Claes Oldenburg's food sculptures. The students use handbuilding techniques to make small scale food sculptures- either just the food or food on a plate or in a bowl.
I did find a new resource this year- the Whitney Museum of American Art has a Whitney for Kids section with a page about Claes Oldenburg.
I won't write too much since it's a repeat lesson, I just thought the students did a really nice job and I wanted to share their fun results!
There were lots of healthy foods this year.
And there are always lots of treats!
