MIDDLE SCHOOL SEMINAR: American Artist Wayne Thiebaud
This week, Middle School students learned about American Artist Wayne Thiebaud, best known for his nostalgic confection paintings. After learning about Thiebaud's subject matter and style, students were asked to draw a confection of their choice using his same likeness using oil pastels on black paper. Students then built a 3D version of their rendering.
The art assignment requires students to:
1. Choose a confection to draw: cupcake, cake, pie, ice cream, etc.
2. Use a pencil to plan out single drawing on paper. Use ellipses, triangles, and other shapes to create similar effect to Thiebaud. Plan additional decorations: icing, cherries, designs, etc to enhance sweet.
3. Use oil pastels to draw and color in confection.
4. Recreate a mini 3D version of your creation.
