Art Workshop: Still Life Drawing
Teachers: Preparing for the Art Workshop
Objects used in the lesson:
This workshop covers the technical aspects of Unit 5A of the National Curriculum for Art - how to draw still life subjects. It lasts all day and takes place in your own classroom. The workshop should come early in the unit, so that in future lessons teachers can give children the chance to practise the skills covered.
Children's artwork from the workshop:
