2. Students will learn techniques for blending, applying, and layering pastel chalk.
3. Students will learn techniques to create realistic texture on their cupcake and strawberry garnish using pastel chalk (seeds on strawberries, cupcake liner, swirled frosting, etc).
4. Students will learn techniques to create realistic colors for a vanilla cupcake with strawberry frosting and strawberry garnish using pastel chalk (students are welcome to change the flavor of their cupcake, they do not have to draw what I will demonstrate).

Iced Lemonade (Pastel Chalk)

1. Students will learn techniques for sketching a cup with lemonade, ice cubes, sliced lemon, and straw (outline) using a regular pencil. 
2. Students will learn techniques for blending, applying, and layering pastel chalk.
3. Students will learn techniques to create realistic texture for ice cubes, a glass cup, straw, and sliced lemon garnish using pastel chalk (transparent glass, wet ice cubes, straw, pulp on sliced lemon, etc).
4. Students will learn techniques to create realistic colors for a cup of iced lemonade using pastel chalk (students are welcome to change the flavor of their lemonade, they do not have to draw what I will demonstrate).

S'mores (Pastel Chalk)

1. Students will learn techniques for sketching a stacked s'more contour drawing (outline) using a regular pencil. 
2. Students will learn techniques for blending, applying, and layering pastel chalk.
3. Students will learn techniques to create realistic texture on their s'mores using pastel chalk (roasted marshmallow, melted chocolate, crispy graham cracker).

Because of how detailed these drawings are, there is a good chance students will need to finish sketches outside of the designated class time.
