Doing a still life painting by creating a composition using objects around you is a good challenge for children to focus on lines, colors, composition, shading and eye for details. It is not an easy task especially for a session that lasts for only an hour in my workshop!
In the painting above a five year-old girl has to assemble a green apple (she decided to make two apples using one apple as sample), capture the flower arrangement on a glass vase, capture one of the dining chairs!
This painting was done by an 8-year-old girl in my workshop by capturing the jar in their house and making a blue plate using her imagination. Both girls finished the painting in an hour in my workshop!
