Wintertime Still Life

 
Watch the video to learn about a style of art called Still Life, then create your own wintertime-inspired still life using collage material.
 
 

What You’ll Need

8.5" x 11" sheet of cardstock or heavy paper 
Magazines
Scissors 
Glue stick
Colored pencils or crayons
 

What You’ll Do

1. Print out the linked table template on a sheet of 8.5 x 11 cardstock or heavy paper. If you don’t have a printer handy, then you can draw your own table.
2. Flip through a magazine to find a variety of colors and objects associated with wintertime. Cut out images of still life objects like cups, plates, bowls, flowers, food and animals that remind you of the season. 
3. Play with arranging the cutouts on or around the printout of the table.
Tip: Experiment with placing the cutouts upside down, sideways or overlapping.
4. Glue down the cutouts to create a wintertime still life collage.
5. Draw around your still life collage to complete your wintertime scene. 
Tip: Use your imagination to create a background for your still life. Is your wintertime scene in a kitchen? A museum? A hotel? Outside?
