This is a great drawing project for older elementary students. It covers space, form, color, and composition. Each individual object was drawn independently and later cut out and added to the still life.
Before the girls chose objects from around the room and drew them, we had an activity on how to draw cubes and cylinders. This gave them a good basis for pretty much every object they drew.
After drawing the objects in pencil, and coloring them, they traced them in black Sharpie. We discussed space with depth and focused on overlapping and placement to create a deep space. The kids were very proud of their final pieces.
