Patterned Still Life-- 5/6s

The 5/6s were developing their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination through observational drawing of a still-life.  Their goal for this unit was to use proportion, overlap and pattern to create a unified composition of a still-life.  They viewed a slide show presentation of a variety of still life artworks.  

Step One: Arrange a still life set up.  Kids should work collaboratively at their table to do so.
Step Two:  Draw your picture with pencil first.  The objects must touch at least 3 sides of the paper and there must be some overlapping.
Step Three:  Outline in black marker.
Step Four:  Fill in the sections of the still life with various patterns.  A pattern sheet was used for inspiration.
