Thiebaud Inspired Cakes
5th Graders finished up their cakes modeled after Wayne Thiebaud's collection this week. Our focus was tints and shades and I think they turned out pretty yummy looking! It is always interesting to me how difficult angles can be (even for older kids).

Works by young artists attract the spotlight -- a cherry on top for kids and families to have the creations hanging at PMA, the Saco Museum and elsewhere.
Why Doughnut Art??
Well, I could say that the reason for making doughnut art is to practice tinting and shading to create the illusion of depth; or I could say it is to reinforce the study of shapes; or I could say it is to experiment with color or different media; or learn about Wayne Thiebaud's art . . .

It was like a cross between a pop-up shop and art installation, and there were over 4,000 items for sale.
