Pattern Gum balls with Wayne Thiebaud



DISCUSSION: repetition, pattern, Pop Art
Show one of Wayne Theibaud's Gum ball Machines
Where do we see repetition in this artwork
Where else?
What does this piece of art make you think of?
How does the gum taste? Does each color taste different?
Do you see where the light hits the gum balls inside the glass?
How did Mr Thiebaud create light? white 
How did he create shadows? black 

ARTIST: Wayne Thiebaud 
(born November 15, 1920) 
He is an American painter 
most famous works are of cakes, pastries, boots, toilets, toys and lipsticks
He is associated with the Pop art movement because of his interest in objects of mass culture,
His works, executed during the fifties and sixties, slightly predate the works of the classic pop artists. 
Thiebaud uses heavy pigment and exaggerated colors to depict his subjects
Well-defined shadows characteristic of advertisements are almost always included in his work.

Make plates of paint with corresponding numbers for the painting
