"If you stare at an object, as you do when you paint, there is no point at which you stop learning things from it." Wayne Thiebaud

Unit Four: How do we choose themes in art? What is an artist's style all about?...

In this unit integrating what we have learned about drawing and color mixing and palettes, we will be working with oils and looking closely at the art of Wayne Thiebaud. We will gather food from the cafeteria and study it, sketch it, create thumbnails to decide on our composition.



Thiebaud inspired cakes from the cafeteria. First time oil painting! What a fantastic job they did...
