RE: Still Life

We set up a still life using things that were white-paper cups, pottery,
molds, silk flowers, toilet paper rolls, mat board, paper bags, vases.
We used a "cubby" in the art studio, hung different white fabrics or
board, covered boxes to vary heights, and then just filled it
up-including tacking some things onto the walls. We attached a single
light source over the top (that we could adjust the angle). Students
used a view finder to help decide on a section to draw. They came out
great! Next year we will build a black still life.

We used old license plates, old cameras (flea market items), sunglasses,
carved African masks, and a map.


We also do a "pocket still life" - empty things from your pocket, purse,
or back pack.
