Peppermint Candy

We drew these sweets after looking at many art examples by Wayne Thiebaud.  
Students were given the choice of using oil pastels and 6" x 9" paper, or colored pencils and 4 1/2" x 6"paper.
 To make the candy really big, I showed students how to start their drawing with a horizon line and 4 guide dots.  Then the rest of the drawing included curved lines for the top, sides, and table reflection of the candy.

Big thanks to Flamson Middle School students!
