Overall, I am happy with how they turned out. When I do this project again, I am going to have the kids score and slip their base on to their cupcake top because they aren't sitting very well. I am also going to make everyone glaze because for the most part, the glazed cupcakes look a lot nicer. Here are some of the finished cupcakes!

7th grade 3-D students finished up their clay cupcakes and were eager to begin their next project. We looked at the artwork of pop artist, Romero Britto. Britto is a painter and sculptor from Brazil who creates light-hearted, happy artwork using simple shapes, bright colors and lots of patterns. He took inspiration from Matisse and Picasso.
