Here are the completed painted cakes by Grade 7. I wasn’t actually planning to do this project but the students were learning about tone. They were so excited to draw and paint the ice cream cones that I thought why not move on to “yummy” cakes. Nothing like painting your interests. It proved to be a very popular topic. Throughout the whole unit the students were exposed to shading techniques in pencil, pen, watercolour and acrylics. Now they need to remember those skills for next year!
