In the Art Room - 2nd Grade Apple Still Life

I can't remember where I saw this lesson, but it was definitely another blogger so if you recognize it let me know and I'll give credit!  This was so easy and they all turned out so well.  I started them off with a large circle drawn on their paper to be the plate.  We discussed point of view, and more specifically aerial point of view.  They viewed several paintings with different points of view and distinguished which ones were aerial.  Then we figured out how to paint our apples and backgrounds so our paintings would also have an aerial point of view.  We used watercolor and oil pastels to complete the works.  They shouldn't be sideways, but I couldn't change it!!


  1. Amazing work for 7 year olds! I wish I could see a video of you teaching this lesson!


  2. These are so lovely! I agree with Pat above... for 7 or 8 years of age... these are tremendous!
