Art Portfolio and Drawing and Painting students have a big reason to celebrate as they have just conquered their own still life compositions. They were tasked to assemble objects that speak to their personality, heritage or even just a collection of objects that seemed to fit together. Each piece speaks for itself, although some students have chosen thoughtful titles and brief descriptions.
I certainly recommend that you visit the Main Street exhibit to gain a full appreciation of this work. The still life unit is a culmination of observational drawings beginning with rendering tennis balls (graphite only) and then apples (colored pencils). Many warm up sketches also aided in final composition decisions as well as and this assignment invited them to experiment with materials of their choosing.
Students demonstrated patience and perseverance to complete this work still life. My hope is that students gained the feeling of satisfaction as each class passed. The development of form (3D shapes conveyed on a 2D surface) is easy to see in any of these fine student works. And, to finalize the compositions, students mounted and matted their work to make their art truly exhibition-ready.
