Students will determine which recipe they would like to illustrate.

Students will lightly sketch an outline of each ingredient needed to make their favorite recipe.

-Students should use resource images to improve accuracy of scale, proportion, and details when sketching out their ingredients.

-Students need to make sure the entire drawing paper is filled.

-The ingredients students draw must be in correct proportions and drawn large enough to fill the drawing paper.

Before beginning to add any colored pencil, students should make sure their outline drawing fills at least 95% of the drawing paper; if it does not, additional details need to be added or resizing needs to be done.

With all outlines drawn, students will begin applying color to their recipe ingredients.

As students are apply colored pencil to their drawings, they will focus on layering colors to match the milkshake in their reference image.

-Students should start with light pressure and light colors/values.

-Color should be added consistently throughout the entire drawing; a high level of craftsmanship should be easily noticeable when the drawing is complete and consistency of color application contributes a great deal to this.

With all colored pencil application complete, students should lightly write the list of their recipe ingredients.

-Students should write their ingredient list with an artistic font – not their everyday handwriting.
