3rd grade Abstract Food Paintings

3rd graders are exploring realism vs abstraction.  For this assignment, they were asked to come up with six foods and portray them in an abstract way, thinking about the foods as textures, patterns, and colors.  This was my first time doing this lesson (I was first exposed to the lesson in a college painting class!) and it went great!  The kids loved it.  They especially loved sharing their paintings with their friends as they guessed each others foods.
