Drawing a Still Life with Young Children
Session 3: Grades K–6
When drawing basic figures and composing a still life, children develop hand eye coordination, practice seeing details, and learn perspective. These are essential skills for visual literacy which transfer to skills needed for reading and writing. Experience drawing a still life in a step by step format that you can do with your own students.
