Educator Resources
  • What is a still life?

    How might an artist employ specific compositional devices to elicit a particular experience for the viewer?

    What factors might influence the objects an artist chooses to depict and the way they represent them?

  • Grades 4–12

    After creating still life in the activity for all levels, pair students to write a response to one another’s work. Have them consider the compositional and medium choices, as well as the context, that each student provided for the objects.

    All Levels

    Choose two or three examples of still lifes created with similar objects and ask students to compare the works. What decisions did each artist make in the way they treated and contextualized the object(s)? Offer students the opportunity to create a still life of their own using similar objects.
