Claes Oldenburg Ceramic Doughnuts-2nd grade

Who doesn't love doughnuts? They're covered in tasty sweetness and sometimes look like a piece of art you can eat. 2nd grade made their own ceramic doughnuts with just that idea in mind. We looked at some of Claes Oldenburg's food sculptures (such as his Pastry Case, Good Humor Bars, and Floor Cake, to name a few), discussed what made them look so delicious, and used those ideas in our doughnuts. The kids decided that realistic color, shape, and texture were very important, so that's what they focused on.  Otterbein Elementary is starting to look more like a bakery....
