Wayne Thiebaud Cupcakes

Wayne Theibaud is famous for his paintings of cafeteria style food. He used lots of repetition, so having students create multiple cupcakes was a good way to imitate his style.
1. I gave each student a 3.5" square piece of paper and pencil and had them draw a simple cupcake. Then I gave them a 3.5" square of carbon paper and showed them how to trace and make a copy. If they traced their first drawing onto the middle of a 9" x 12" paper, and then one on the left and one on the right, the drawing had a good chance of being balanced.
2. A table line was added, all the lines were traced with a black marker.
3. The cupcakes were colored in with any colors the students chose.
