Still Life Drawing

Second Grade Still Life Drawing

This year I decided to focus the first few lessons of the year on drawing. It really has been going so well. It is making such a difference.

My 3rd grade lesson went so well I used it in 2nd too!
I set up this little still life on each table (it’s a Dixie cup with a few color pencils).

We talked about observational drawing and then worked step by step, breaking it down into simple shapes. Talking about the heigh and the space between the pencils. We added a shadow and horizon line in the background. I let them take the colored pencils out of the cups and color in the pencils in their drawing at the end.

Materials: still life’s (Dixie cups, color pencils), drawing pencil, paper, eraser
