These cake drawing were created by my fifth grade students. This lesson was inspired by the artist Wayne Thiebaud. To begin, I asked students to pretend they were cake decorators, and it was their job to create a cake for a holiday or celebration. Students then had to draw the cake that they were designing.

This was a wonderful lesson to help students understand the concept of mixing tints. Students began painting the background by mixing one color with white. The idea was to get subtle changes in the color by adding more or less white.
I found the idea for this lesson on TeachAndShoot.com. Overall, I think the results were great!
