Fourth grade students have been working on their observation skills as they drew a still life. I often question myself as to whether this is too hard for a 4th grader but based on the results this year, I think they are definitely up for it. I was really pleased with many of the results. They were challenged to focus on shadows, colors and laying down their color in a way to add the illusion of dimension to their work. For their first attempts at this type of work, I think they did really well!
