In this assignment, students are challenged to draw “plain white cups.”
The cups are simple to draw and allow students to see the changing values on their pure white surfaces. (Marshmallows are also a smart choice!) After drawing from observation, students must use creative thinking skills to illustrate what else might be going on with the cups. Are they really ant motels? Are they rocket launchers for the circus? Are they spilling molten lava all over the carpet? The sky is the limit. It’s so inspiring to see what the students come up with!
