We looked at his many paintings of yummy dessert foods, then made a list of our favorite desserts.

After this, students used thin paintbrushes and black paint to create black line paintings of their favorite desserts. The following week, we discussed parts of a painting, in particular the background. Students then mixed colors on their paper to create a background for their food.
