Wayne Thiebaud Ice cream cones


Hello my most amazing artists! Today we are going to be learning about the artist Wayne Thiebaud. Wayne is an American artist  known for his colorful works depicting commonplace objects—pies, lipsticks, paint cans, ice cream cones, pastries, and hot dogs—as well as for his landscapes and figure paintings. He is considered part of the pop art movement because of his interest in objects of mass culture. Today we are going to be making our own Wayne Thiebaud ice cream cones. 



Let’s get started. With a pencil you want to draw out your ice cream cone. The shape of your cone is an upside down triangle.  Next make your scoops of ice cream. Make sure you overlap your ice cream scoops so it gives the illusion that they are stacked together. When you are done using pencil to sketch your artwork you can use crayon, marker, colored pencils, or paint to give it color. Take your time, have fun! Don’t Forget to add some fun toppings! Below are some examples for you.

Perspective Aquarium


5th and 6th Grade Hello my wonderful artists! Today we are going to combine Perspective and Optical Illusions- two art making skills we have learned this year to create our masterpiece.
You will have two weeks to complete the work please take your time. Watch the videos on drawing perspective more than once so you can follow along with your own drawing. 

Below are some videos to watch to get you thinking about perspective and illusion.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-RyB14hAt0&index=5&t=0s&list=PLQKLR8OmizLZP6NNt45Be_oG3pH5OahuE

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSnI6QuaDDw&index=4&t=0s&list=PLQKLR8OmizLZP6NNt45Be_oG3pH5OahuE

The next two videos are to help refresh on drawing perspective and space

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ompo4xG6m8g&index=6&t=0s&list=PLQKLR8OmizLZP6NNt45Be_oG3pH5OahuE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjhkxFDvD78&index=7&t=470s&list=PLQKLR8OmizLZP6NNt45Be_oG3pH5OahuE

1.


Use a ruler or straight edge to Remember to draw your perspective lines nice and light. They should all meet at the vanishing point..

Create rounded ceiling lines connected to the vertical lines through the top.  Note: the top arc may not be completely visible, they may go right off the page.



3.

“prep” the bottom of the page for the “perspective lines.”  Since this is a 9×12 paper, I have them mark off every 2 inches and make a dot across the bottom of the paper. Each dot is connected with the middle dot.

4.

use their ruler to create horizontal lines through the perspective lines.  I recommend placing the horizontal line directly between the vertical lines, rather than making them random.  This automatically creates a spatial distance that grows from wide to narrow as the lines go further into the distance.



All lines are traced

 over with sharpie.  The lines along the walls and ceiling are thickened.  The floor is also colored in with sharpie.


Next week we will continue with adding color and sea animals.
