French painter Paul Cezanne painted the artwork shown: The Basket of Apples in 1895. Go to your kitchen and look for some food that you could use for your own still life drawing or painting. What else could you put in your still life? In Cezanne's painting he also had fabric, a basket, a bowl, and a bottle. Look at how Cezanne put shadows in his painting. The video here shows a basic shading technique for showing how light hits an object. Now you can create your own still life drawing or painting.

The Box- it is important for artists to understand form (3D Shapes) and depth (making a square be 3D). To capture these two art concepts, we will draw a 3D box with objects pouring out. The idea is that the box is the space we are in right now as we are quarantined and the objects are things that we love and adore.

  • Artist Prompt: Create a 3D box opening and 3 - 4 objects coming out of it. Pick objects you love; rainbows, ninjas, kitties, FOOD, so on. Please make sure to OVERLAP! Erase that lines to make things look like 1 object is in front of or behind the other.

  • Supplies needed: Piece of paper any size or color, ruler (if you want your lines straight), pencil, sharpie, coloring supplies (whatever you may have)

Found Object- A found object is just that, an object of the "everyday" that is found and incorporated into making art! 

  • Artist Prompt: I am really testing your abilities here! Your job is to find objects and create a crown. Make sure that the crown can fit on your head. The task at hand sounds simple, however once you start to build and create you may realize the difficulties to come. The crown cannot be made from just paper it has to include objects. DO NOT RUIN YOUR STUFF (so do not glue a fork to your crown, find a different way to attach it). It only has to stay together long enough to take a picture.

  • Supplies needed: Found objects, tie them, glue them, fold them, CONNECT IT ALL SOME HOW

  • Examples
