Cakes, 5th Grade

 This lesson is a perfect Wayne Thiebaud lesson.  I found the idea for this lesson on Arteascuola.   Students drew a cake and then added shading to make it more realistic.

Here's a hint:  After coloring with oil pastels, have students use a Q-tip with a little baby oil to blend the colors.  It really makes the pastels look smooth, and almost like paint.
