Introduction to Still Life

3 PD Hours

  • 1 Explore a variety of techniques and strategies to introduce and develop still-life drawing skills.

  • 2 Create connections between the subject matter of still life within art and other disciplines.

  • 3 Integrate strategies to promote engagement and build student confidence while creating still-life artworks.

The historical prevalence and spotlight on observational skills of still life make it a true art room staple. Though, getting students started, and keeping them engaged, in this traditional subject matter can be challenging. Join facilitator Jenn Russell for this fundamental PRO Pack as she outlines her process for setting students up for success with still life from an inviting introduction through project conclusion.

Jennifer Russell

High School Art Teacher and PRO Facilitator

With an impressive amount of visual overstimulation and color, Jenn Russell welcomes her students into her art room at Hebron High School in the Lewisville Independent School District. She loves jokes of the popsicle stick variety, chocolate, tchotchkes, and color (did we mention that?). She is a newly minted and still lost on a daily basis mom to a little boy named Nate, or #ARussellSprout as he is known to his followers. When she has time, you can find her reading, dabbling with pencils or in the great Texas outdoors with her camera.
