Nothing like drawing from real life!
This year I have decided, instead of apples and pears as a still life subject, that the students should study the work of Wayne Thiebaud and then use a cupcake for the still life subject, real cupcakes...yuummmmmy. Well, it helps to have a daughter who is studying to be a pastry chef. She made red velvet cupcakes for the 5th and 6th graders. Each student had to draw the cupcake first and then, after all the clean up, we ate them!!
