Project Description

Class Project:

Paint a still life, abstract, or landscape painting.


Identify 3 time wasters in your schedule.

Set up a workspace.

Start painting!  You may choose to work in watercolor, acrylic, or oil paint. Start with something simple and no too large. You may also choose to paint realistically or abstractly. You are also free to choose the subject matter. Still life images are a good way to start because you can arrange the objects of your choice in a manner most pleasing to your composition. Still life is also a good way to start because you can take your time painting and don't have to worry too much about the weather or elements such as rain or wind. Flowers have a short life span but can provide a wonderful array of colors and shapes to paint. Make sure you select something that interests you.

Deliverable: Students will list three time wasters that they eliminated from their daily or weekly schedule. Start a painting, drawing, or other creative endeavor and post a photo of what they started on the class project gallery.
