Paul Cezanne Inspired Still Life Drawings With Oil Pastel On Black Paper


I made these beautiful Paul Cezanne inspired still life drawings with my favorite
4th grade class this school year! We used black construction paper and drew with oil pastels.



I set up simple fruit bowls in the center of each group of students.
If students draw from life, looking at real objects and drawing what they see,
the drawings will come out more realistically than when they draw from their imagination.

I used a silk scarf to create some wrinkles and folds under the fruit bowl. 


 Please pardon the crummy photos, I forgot my camera that day and used my phone.
The kids really enjoyed the lesson and their drawings turned out beautifully!

What a great idea for your fourth grade class to participate in. Using a black paper and colored oils really makes the image stand out. Your class really has some talent. These photos look wonderful, I am sure that they are on a lot of fridges in this homes. The children look as though they are having a great time.
