Still Life

Questions to consider -

  • What is still life?
  • Why has the artist captured this particular collection of items?
  • What was the artist’s intention?
  • What does it mean?
  • What is your interpretation?
  • Do you like it?

After spending some time considering all of these questions and more, the children set about gathering their own collections of natural items in order to create a unique still life of their own design. However, they weren’t to collect just any item, their challenge was to have a clear intention for the message they wanted these items to convey. 
The results are below and the children did an amazing job - I wonder if you can read the messages hidden in these contemporary art pieces?
