Our State Art Collection display Your Collection 1920 – 1960 features a drawing table for both children and adults. When you visit this display you can draw a colourful still life using the objects in the exhibition as inspiration, and then either take your work home or display it within the space for everyone to admire.
A still life is an art work that shows a group of objects together, often on a table.
Draw a still life by following these instructions:
• Search for colourful examples of still life around this room for inspiration.
• Look closely at the objects in these display cases; what shapes make up the teapots and plates?
• Plan your drawing so that the shapes make a pleasing composition.
• Try different colours and bold patterns to complete your still life.
Have fun and get creative!
