So many of us recognize the colorful and tasty subjects of artist Wayne Thiebaud's work, I thought it would be fun to not only draw our favorite foods- but sculpt them as well. A pile of donated bakery boxes sparked the idea for this project. I thought we could sculpt a type of food that you may find in a bakery box- pie, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, even pizza, and we could paint them and place them inside the boxes just like a real bakery/restaurant would do. Photos of completed work to come! Below is a video of Wayne Thiebaud talking about his work and long career as an artist.
