Cezanne Still Life

3rd and 4th grade students have studied the artwork of Cezanne. He is most well known for his still life paintings. A still-life is a picture of something that does not move, different than a portrait or a landscape. Many artist were doing still-life's during Cezanne's time but his paintings were different. He used bold colors and black lines. I set up a small still life containing fruit (apples and oranges) and flowers on white fabric. Next students used oil pastels and black construction paper to draw the shapes. Next, they blended colors to add value and texture and lastly outline everything in black!!!
