Here is a different version of a Wayne Thiebaud project. We specifically looked at his cakes and discussed what types of 3D shapes we saw (cylinder, triangular prism...) as well as his straightforward compositions- rows with shadows and a blank background. I showed students how to draw a 3D cake slice and a 3D cake with a slice missing. I showed them step by step (and provided some oval tracers) and then supplied them with the same instrucions written/drawn out as a reminder. They did a great job with these! We used oil pasted to draw details and painted in the larger areas with tempera cakes.
