Patterned Still Life: 5th and 6th grade

The 5th and 6th grade students set up still life arrangements and drew them from observation.  We discussed composition and creating interest within a picture.  The students tried to draw some objects with a variety of heights and sizes.  They were to make sure that 2-3 lines went off the edge of the page. 

We viewed a slideshow of many examples of still life paintings from various artists throughout art history.

Then, the students outlined their drawing and filled in the picture with lots of patterns.
