Apple Still Life - 3-5th Dream

Still life arrangement created in Dream class.

Students using the cool colors of purple, blue and green.

Still Life with Apples
We are using yellow and red to fill in our apples. 
We added blue for a shadow to make the apples more three-dimensional.

Lots of lines were added.

Still Life Lesson Plan
Purpose: The still life lesson plan was developed to help the Dream students to understand the meaning of a still life arrangement, warm/cool colors and various types of line designs.  Students were able to look at various still life arrangements by master artists Van Gogh and Cezanne before they created their own.  

Wikipedia defines Still Life as:  A work of art depicting inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on) in an artificial setting. Still life paintings, particularly before 1700, often contained religious and allegorical symbolism relating to the objects depicted.
Each student had a different line design for their tables and background.

Watercolor colored pencils are amazing to work with in art!

Each student brought their own style to their still life.

We share supplies when needed in art.
