Drawing a still life is a great opportunity to introduce children to challenging drawing concepts such as composition and negative space, as well as colour.
This selection of resources helps children tackle these ideas in an imaginative way while increasing their knowledge and experience of drawing materials. The projects offer ways to explore a still life through expressive mark making using a range of exciting media such as ink, carbon paper, pastels and collage and include two resources that show how drawing can be taken through into a final painting in either acrylic or gouache.
