Wayne Thiebaud is a POP ARTIST (which means that he is interested in painting things from mass culture) from MESA, ARIZONA!!! He is most well known for his paintings of ice cream, pies, cakes and candies. He began drawing and painting in the fifties and one summer he worked at Walt Disney drawing goofy, Pinnochio and Jimminy Cricket making only $14.00 a week. 1st and 2nd graders at Herrera used oil pastels and studied cylinders, groundline and using shadow.
