After taking an online e-course from Deep Space Sparkle, I became inspired to try this still life project with my 4th graders. Last week we viewed a power point about Still Life, and Vincent Van Gogh. We drew a vase full of flowers on a table. Today students were introduced to acrylic medium. They enjoyed its buttery texture, and ability to thin with water. They learned to layer highlights and shadows. We only painted the vase, table and wall. Next week we will paint the flowers.
