Holiday Cakes, 5th Grade


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.  
 Cakes were drawn with pencil and then outlined with marker.  After this, students used oil pastels to color.  Lastly, students used baby oil and a Q-tip to blend colors together.
 Overall, I think these turned out wonderful!
