I needed an end of the year project and this turned out really well. I hadn't really taught still-lifes this year...I did some last year with these kids as second graders and I think it had been just long enough for them to want to do them again.
At the end of class, I told the kids I would give them extra credit if they set up a still-life and draw it at home...I got one the next day!
Teacher Sample: Outline in black sharpie and paint with watercolors. This is one of the many reasons why I love my job. Sometimes you just sit down and paint.
