This drawing lesson was an opportunity for 4th graders to draw from their imaginations while thinking about a design that would attract attention. We also chose a setting for our trucks, and lots of descriptive detail, as a writer might do.
After we finished our food truck designs, we jumped into an abstract creation based on the art of Ellsworth Kelly, whose art is currently featured on a postage stamp. We started with our names and then cut them into a grid and rearranged them. I think they have a great visual energy.
