Thai students draw hyper-realistic art


Art classes, where individuals are encouraged to express themselves, testify to peoples’ amazing ability to synchronise skill and imagination: these Thai students definitely proved that with their hyper-realistic drawings of food.


Eighth grade art class assignment 


The artists behind these Studio Ghibli-esque food drawings are none other than eighth graders from a Sri Racha School in Chon Buri, who were asked to employ a specific shading technique on paper plates by their teacher. 

The images were originally shared by their art teacher on Facebook, Silapa 4.0 by By Kru Bua Khon Suay Ei Ei
