I like your idea of doing a Wayne Thiebaud based art project. I'm
thinking it could be either a tempera painting or an oil pastel project.
Thiebaud's city scapes are not "perspectivelly correct", right? That is, they
don't necessarily follow the one or two point perspective parameters we teach
in Art Intro. in high school.
I'm thinking it might have to be an Intermediate Art project where
students have to come up with an imaginary city scape where they create
hills, curving freeway overpasses, palm-tree lined boulevards, etc. In many
ways, breaking away from the strict parameters of one, two and three point
perspective frees the artist up to create a more dynamic feel to the piece.
I'm going to try to check out this show at the Legion of Honor. Thanks for
