Third Grade Wayne Thiebaud Cupcakes

My 3rd grade students recently looked at some artwork by Wayne Thiebaud. The students noticed that he used light, medium, and dark values to create light and shadows in his artwork. Then, the students mixed different values of brown and a color of their choice to make cupcakes. After painting the light, medium, and dark parts of the cupcakes, I showed the students how they could blend the colors with their finger to make a smoother transition between sections.
