Lollipop Warmup Drawing

My after school drawing class needed a new warm up exercise. A chance crossing with a candy store brought me this week’s solution – lollipops. I handed out the pops and the kids lightly traced the circle and then drew their own stick. The drawings were then traced over with a black marker and filled in with colored pencils. Older students were shown how to add shadow to the stick by just shading half of it gray. And of course, they got to eat the lollipops when they were done. Now my biggest problem is finding something just as tasty for next week...
