....Pop Art Desserts....A yummy look at Art.....

click on painting to see artists at work.
Pop Art Cupcake
This beautiful work of art was produced by one of the artists in my Pop Art Desserts Class. We studied the work of an American artist, Wayne Thiebaud, and created a painting based on his famous pastry paintings. Thiebaud is associated with the Pop Art Movement due to his interest in painting objects of mass culture~things that are popular with people. The students emulated his use of texture, an exaggerated color palette, and well defined shadows. And the finished works......absolutely delicious.
