A snapshot into my world of teaching primary school visual arts
Still life drawing-surpise!!!
Never under estimate your kids and what they will think is 'cool'. This still life drawing activity in my eyes was one of the more 'not as exciting' activities i had planned for my grade 4 classes. Coming off the back of creating wire sculptures i thought the kids reaction would be BOR-ING!!!
Oh how wrong was I. They LOVED IT!
For the lesson i set my room up in true art studio formation. All the tables facing inwards so everyone had their own angle of the fruit bowl (i have never done this with this grade, so just by moving the tables around created that 'hook' to get them interested)
