Still Life...

My 6th graders just finished up their still life projects.  In an attempt to stimulate art discussion, I had the groups make 3 different kinds of still life projects.
standard watercolor still life with a focus on shading and layering paint

"painterly" still life of shoes with a focus on contour lines, shading and having fun with paint

photo-realist still life of candy with a focus on all the colors and details
We then were able to display finished examples of each and talk about the similarities and differences.  I was super impressed with all of them!  

Here are some more finished examples of each one...
