High School still life oil paintings

Pulled out the cloth, bought some fruit from right outside the school, gathered paper and pencil and had the students make two timed drawings of the still life. The next step was to transfer one of the images to a larger paper. Only one student in the group had experience using oil paints, for the rest it was a new gig.

I was happy with the results. A lot of challenges presented itself and the kids had to apply some new problem solving skills.

Below is the process and results.

Learning to blend details.
I always advise painting the background first, some kids just don't listen.
I liked that everyone had a different idea for colors.

Teacher example.
