Fall Harvest Observational Drawings

Fourth grade students have been working on developing their ability to see "like a scientist" this past month by observing and drawing a harvest still life.  After drawing the still life the first time, they partner critiqued and drew it again based on the feedback they received.  The 2nd attempt was then colored using oil pastels.  Again, students focused on adding color as they saw it not as they thought it should be; no coloring book colors from this group!  Here are some of their beautiful results.


  1. Beautiful - fall is the perfect season for still life!

  2. These are excellent! Teaching still-life is no easy feat!
