Still life Fruit in Colored Pencil

To tie in with this month’s focus on nutrition, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity for the students to practice drawing still life objects, specifically fruit! They were able to choose a lime, an orange, a pepper or a pomegranate. The fruit was cut in half and students were instructed to study the fruit and carefully draw what they saw. This art lesson also became a multi-sensory experience. Not only did they use their eyes but engaged their sense of smell and touch as well. Wonderful work 🙂

About stephwheatley

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity.
