Apples and bottles

Apples, bottles, and crayons are the ABC of drawing, and so that is how my students started their pastel work this week. The challenge was to control the lighting in the classroom and allow for shadows to do their part. I made them watch two short Utube videos on how to draw an apple in pastels and how do descent shadows before I gave them 30 minutes to do their own drawing from a still life arrangement... I didn't give them much instruction on the bottles as I want to see where they are at and how much reflection they see.

This is work from my large class of 9th graders.

Fifteen kids in the class and I think they all did a pretty good job!
