Re:[teacherartexchange] Still Life Drawing


Date: Wed Jul 20 2005 - 06:16:28 PDT

I set up two still lifes when I teach still life drawing. One is on a
cart that I move out to the center of the room so that students can view
it from all sides. The other is set up on a table against the wall and
can only be viewed from the front and sides.
Another thing I did when I had my kids draw the still life shells was to
glue the shells with Elmers school glue (washable, can break it down
later if I want) to small pieces of matt board. That way we could pick
them up and move them from the center of each drawing table to the area
where I stored them inbetween uses. I wrote a small number for each
table in the corner of the matt board to make it easy to identify which
shell group went to each table the following class. I like variety and
kids appreciate the choice.
