Ice Cream Cone Watercolor Painting

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
Ice Cream Cone Watercolor PaintingIf you want to encourage kids to draw tall shapes, it helps to have paper cut to match. I turned standard 18" x 24" watercolor paper into 18" x 6" panels for this project and it worked really well.1. I began by making a list with the students of all the different ice cream flavors we could think of. The point was to have them realize how many different colors ice cream comes in. Students began by sketching in pencil a cone with as many scoops of ice cream as they could fit on top.2. To help keep the watercolor from spreading, all the lines with were traced in crayon.3. The scoops were painted in with watercolor paint.4. The background was painted in with one color.5. After the paint was dry, all the lines were traced again with a black permanent marker. Little spots were traced as specks of fruit.Class Follow Up: I had a small amount of non-hardening clay on hand, and I gave each student a grape-sized piece and challenged them to see who could make the smallest ice cream cone. The kids loved it and focused on the task, rather than comparing who got the most, etc. And some made incredibly tiny shapes!
