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.
