A still life is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which are either natural or man-made.
What is Observational Drawing?
Observational drawing isdrawing what you see. It can be a flower, a person, a still life, a landscape. But it's drawing what you see in front of you as realistically as possible.
Examples of Still Lives
Fabric of Different Colours
Large Drawing Paper
Optional: Smudge Sticks
Set-tip several tables with different still lives.
Note: Older children can set up their own still-lives or add elements to it. Try to have at least 3 tables with different still-lives so students can rotate between tables if they finish one drawing early.
Learn hand-eye coordination, creating shadow and perspective, and noticing fine details.
