This year we will be looking at several different artists in class.  The first is Wayne Thiebaud.  Wayne Thiebaud (whose name is pronounced Tee-Bow, just like the Gators’ quarterback), Thiebaud is sometimes grouped with the “Pop Artists” because he paints subjects from popular culture (like cakes, gumball machines, and ice cream sundaes) .

He was very interested in creating realistic paintings and he did this by using thick paint in exaggerated colors. When he painted cakes, for example, he applied the paint like a baker would spread frosting. The food in his paintings looks real enough to eat. He is known as “The Dessert Painter.”

Please be sure to ask your student about Mr. Wayne Thiebaud!
