What do kids love more than stuffed animals? For this project, the students created a Stuffed Animal Still Life. I found this project on The Incredible Art Department
website, so please click the link for more information. My 6-year-old students created a simplified version of this project, but I still love how they came out! Instead of chalk, I let the students use pencil to draw their stuffed animal and then I had them color their drawings in with oil pastels, as instructed on the website.
I used this project in another class I taught and it was very successful. I wish I had some pictures to show! I'll have to look to see if I can find any examples. Anyway, here is an example from the class I taught on August 12th. Also, it can help to show some examples of Still Life paintings by famous artists for this project, too. I chose Caravaggio. Enjoy!
