These are not new... This idea of creating tints and turning it into an ice cream cone is not a new one... in fact, when I type in tint ice cream cone into google, there are several wonderful examples. These cones were forgotten when I was posting about my featured artist of the year, Wayne Thiebaud (click here for more on the featured artist). This is the project that my 3rd grade did and THE LOVED mixing paints. It was fun to see them so excited about making these treats. The one thing I did differently this year was I added a woven cone. This gave the project some challenge, but nothing they couldn't handle. This is a repeat because of the simplicity and the directness to the concept.
