Cézanne is known for his still life paintings–mostly of household objects arranged with various fruits. Cézanne would spend hours arranging the fruit and moving his easel around to get just the right perspective. We talked about how particular he was how long he took to complete his paintings. It is said that he took so long in fact to complete his still life paintings that his fruit would often rot in its place! EEEEW! LOL.
My Doodlebugs then started recreating our very own still life! They drew their bowls and fruit and we talked about overlapping! Introducing my little artists to new words and terms helps them to develop great vocabulary skills all while having a great time!
These gorgeous bright bowls bowls will be completed in our next class so stay tuned till then!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
