Wayne Theibaud Ice Cream Cones: Repetition
Wayne Thiebaud is an American artist associated with the Pop movement and he was famous for his paintings of cafeteria-style food. He used heavy pigment and lots of repetition in his artwork. I thought it would be fun for my students to draw some whimsical ice cream cones they could create with whatever color they desired.
What you'll need:
Hand out 9 X12 sheets of drawing paper. Make sure everyone has their own pencil and oil pastels. Oil pastels are great because their color is so rich and bright and the consistency is just a giant crayon! Encourage the students to color in their entire drawing, making sure to press down with the oil pastel so that the color is vivid and looks finished. The students can use multiple colors, they can create patterns and outline their backgrounds. Instruct students how to blend with oil pastels. Everyone had fun creating their own flavors and toppings.
