4th grade CAKES!

I was pretty excited about this lesson and I think the kids were, too. Who doesn’t love making art that looks like cake? I will admit, it sure made me hungry… We looked at artwork by Wayne Thiebaud, and talked about mixing white with an original color (also known as a hue) to make a tint and mixing black with a hue to get a shade. Once they understood hues, tints, and shades, we reviewed how to draw a cylinder and then how to cut a piece out of that cylinder. Then we painted the cakes to look similar to Wayne Thiebaud. After the paintings were dry, the next week we added details to the cake with oil pastels. We cut them out, cut foil out for the plates, and glued everything on black paper.

 They turned out pretty yummy amazing, don’t ya think?!

Again, I intended to only take a few pictures and I ended up with a bajillion. They all turned out so great!
