Still Life Painting
The still life project is designed to introduce students to one of the most fundamental and foundational approaches to painting. As a group, students will arrange a simple still life of various objects and choreograph the lighting setup. Drawing and painting from life is a basic skill that all artists must master. It requires the artist to visually translate the 3-Dimensional into the 2-Dimensional.Emphasis will be placed on students building an understanding of warm and cool light and shadows, local color, form and cast shadows, contrast and paint application.
Examples can be found to the right. The project rubric is attached at the bottom of the page.
