I have a small collection of tea pots and tea cups. Some were gifts, others were purchased for a tea party birthday years ago.
I brought some into the classroom with some fresh flowers so that my third graders could create still life paintings. We talked about composition, hierarchy, overlap, shadow, and highlight.
They used marker and watercolor to create these lovely images. I love how different they all are and how many of them added fruits and flowers from their own imagination.
