My older students (8-12) had such a blast creating these acrylic cake paintings inspired by the art of Wayne Thiebaud. I talked to the kids about applying the paint to look like frosting, and to think about what flavour their layer cakes would be and what colours would work best to show each flavour. I also shared with them that even though Wayne Thiebaud created paintings of cakes he actually prefers to eat pie!
