Delicious Compositions

This Year 3 class have been learning all about food in their Topic. In art we looked at the shape and colour of fruit and sketched and painted apples inspired by the Still Life paintings of Cezanne.

Paul Cezanne. Still Life with Apples (1893-1894)


We then created our own real live Still lifes by creating the shape of foods from air drying clay using pinch pit technique to create a hollow form that wouldn’t crack.

We used primary colours and white to create the colours we wanted for our delicious food.

The final step was to select fruits to put together inside a frame with patterned fabric in the background and photograph them to look like a still life from a Paul Cezanne painting!
