"Cakes" by Wayne Thiebaud, 1963
2nd grade just finished their "Cake Paintings" and they look delicious. We studied the art work of painter Wayne Thiebaud, looking closely at his paintings of cakes. Each student drew out their cake. They then painted them using tempra paint. Each student learned to mix paint to expand their basic palette of blue, red, green and yellow.
