Still life of glass and cloth

Older children were given the opportunity to translate dfferent textures and properties onto paper- coloured glass which is hard and rigid, compared to the softness of cloth.

This was also the chance to enhance observational skills, proportion and position and understand better light and shadow.

Still Life of Fruit

Younger children got the chance to enhance their observational skills. They were encouraged to relate fruit to shapes and/or other everyday objects to help make more sense of shape and form, thus making it more practical to translate the actual fruit onto paper. 

They were also helped to understand proportion and position, and had the chance to work with light and shadow, using different shades of colour.
