You’re My Sweet Art!

This colored pencil drawing lesson had several learning layers that added to its sweetness! We drew, we shaded and learned about color and value. We also looked at several living artists whose work is physically made from sweets or artists who use sweets as their subject matter. But, the sweetest part of all, we sampled our subject and ate our still life! Fun times. Great work everyone! The work featured below is by 9th-12th grade, mostly first year art students.


I created this presentation, “Confectionery in Art” to share artists who create art using sweets as their material or their subject matter!
