The basis of this assignment is to teach the kids the effect of an intense light source on forms. 
I start off by teaching the kids how to draw forms. I go over eye level, foreshortened circles, and contour lines. Then I demonstrate how light effects the forms by taking my white Styrofoam forms and hitting them with a spotlight. We talk about shadows on the object and cast shadows off the object. We talk about how the light hits rounded and flat forms differently and how the position of the light changes the cast shadows. 
Then I introduce the students to Wayne Theibaud. I show them a PowerPoint of him and his artwork.
They then use forms in the shape of desserts to create pictures to prove their understanding of what I have taught them. 
These are all done by 7th and 8th grade art students.
