Wayne Thiebaud A La Mode

Third grade artists have been super busy, having fun and working on mixing tints for their
ice cream still life paintings, based on the work of American painter Wayne Thiebaud.

Sometimes, Wayne Thiebaud is thought of as a Pop artist because of his favorite subject,
fancy store bought desserts, but I like to think of him as a formal still life painter,
minus the bowls of fruit and vases of flowers.

A tint is a color mixed with white to make it lighter.
I'm getting hungry just looking at these sundaes!
The students got an amazing range of tints in their work.

You can never have enough sprinkles!
Thank you, Home Depot!
