Re: What to Put in a Still Life?


Date: Sat Nov 03 2001 - 11:55:21 PST

I'm always hitting the yard sales for interesting items. I have a toy red
wagon, various stuffed animals, all kinds of interesting ceramic items, like
a jar for garlic and colored glass.
With my fifth graders, they made a still life set up using bones, feathers,
dried leaves, pine cones and sea shells. they could choose 3-5 items. Our
goal was a contour line drawing with shading added. They loved the drawing,
but had trouble with the shading. However, they loved drawing the bones. I
think it was the gross factor. janet
