We have completed working on our blue dog-Klee Cat acrylic paintings and the students are now focusing on art of Wayne Thiebaud. Thiebaud is an American painter widely known for his colorful works depicting commonplace objectsâ€”pies, lipsticks, paint cans, ice cream cones, pastries, and hot dogsâ€”as well as for his landscapes and figure paintings.
We focused on his cupcake paintings. We practiced drawing the cupcake and its various icing designs. Once students were comfortable with their images they added color with oil pastels. The students enjoyed this art project and it shows in their beautiful yummy cupcake projects.
