Re: Still Life, drawing in general

before they start using a viewfinder for a still life, you should discuss
proportion with them. Make them understand that the hole in the viewfinder
is their piece of paper and whatever is in the top of the hole is in the top
of their drawing. same with bottom, attention to size
relationships. my students use them very successfully. one particular
favorite is to give them a fake flower and have them do an extreme closeup
in the georgia okeefe style. then draw glue on all lines let dry and then
color with oil pastels blended with baby oil. i got that lesson here ages
ago! good luck
