Good enough to eat

cupcakes

Over the past couple of weeks my third graders have been working on an art piece inspired by Wayne Thiebaud.  After watching a video of the artist at work, I asked the kids to draw a cupcake with LOTS of frosting. We discussed tints and shades and I did a demonstration showing them how apply that concept when painting.  The kids loved mixing their colors which inspired ME to do more projects allowing them to do that!  Once the paint was dry, they “decorated” their cupcakes with color pencils.  I love the variety in color and toppings!
