My kindergartners learn about still life painting. We look at several fine art exemplars of fruit in still life leading up to making our own. I teach students step-by-step how to draw different fruits, and we draw and construct our own fruit bowl still life together.
The Fruit Color and Cut Pages came about when I realized not all kindergartners have the skills yet to learn step-by-step drawing, or work together. Every once and awhile a class seems particularly young and they really need to just work on coloring, cutting, and pasting. We still learn about the genre of still life, but their project is done more independently. Students get the Fruit Color and Cut Pages, color them, cut them, and glue them onto a bowl or plate they have drawn on construction paper.
