Macarons in chalk pastel

This was a quick but effective lesson on form and shading, using chalk pastels.
I demonstrated how to draw a macaron to Grade 7-9 students. 
I showed them the ruffled 'foot' part and how to do a soft highlight.

They drew them nice and large on 9 x 12" construction paper. 
Then they coloured and blended them using chalk pastels. 

Finally, they were cut out. 
Most students just managed to finish in our 80 minute block. 
As you can see, strawberry was a favourite flavour!
