7th grade Observational Mixed Media Still-life

Title: Observational Mixed Media Still-life //  Grade Level: 7th // Concept: Drawing, painting, collage

Objective: Students will experiment with four different mediums in one project. After completing a line drawing of one of four still life setups around the room, students sliced their paper into four sections. Each section was completed using a different medium- graphite, chalk pastel, collage and paint.

Essential Questions:
How do the four different art materials: graphite, chalk pastel, collage and paint change the aesthetical look of the still-life?
How do you create space? by overlapping the still-life items
How do artists and designers care for and maintain materials, tools, and equipment?
Why is it important for safety and health to understand and follow correct procedures in handling materials, tools, and equipment? – You don’t want to ruin the other sections by being messy with the chalk pastels or paint.
