Still Life- project
Media's to choose from include:
For this project your table will set up a still life using about 7 objects. Make sure that you get a good enough start that you will not have trouble setting this still life up again.
Using a media from the list above, try to replicate what you see as realistically as you can. Be sure to include shadows, highlights and keep a check on proportions and size relationships.
Fill the paper the best you can. Draw large!

Oil pastel (also called wax oil crayon) is a painting and drawing medium with characteristics similar to pastels and wax crayons. Unlike "soft" or "Japanese" pastel sticks, which are made with a gum or methyl cellulose binder, oil pastels consist of pigment mixed with a non-drying oil and wax binder.
Chalk pastel- a chalk-like crayon made from ground pigment with a binder added. Pastels offer more brilliant colors than crayons without the drying time of paint. They are available in varying degrees of hardness; the softer the pastel the brighter the color, but the softer pastels are more prone to smearing.
