Cezanne Still Lifes
In art the third graders have been studying Paul Cezanne. They learned that he was a post-impressionist painter who loved to paint still-life and landscape paintings. A still-life is an arrangement of non-living objects. The third graders then created their own still-life pictures using cut paper and oil pastel for shading. Another goal of the project was for the students to understand more about the element of art VALUE. After learning about Value, they added highlights and shadows to each object to give them form.
