Our cupcake work is DONE!! Below are photos of a few kids at work on their pencil studies and the oil pastel drawings they did using their paper mache cupcakes as models.
It didn't matter whether students were working with pencil or oil pastels, the majority of them had that "aha" moment when their flat drawing appeared to be 3 dimensional because of their shading. Kids were holding up each others' work and walking away so they could view the magic from a distance. I just LOVE it when that happens!! I have one more set of pencils sketches from this afternoon that I forgot to photograph. I'll add them later to this post, because that group REALLY got into it and most were able to sketch multiple cupcakes.
