What are the requirements?

 

Students will focus on still life drawings. A still-life is a picture of objects that don't move.
Often vases, bowls of fruit, bottles etc. The artist sets up a still-life usually in the studio
to do a 'study' of the objects.
It may be a drawing or a painting. The artist looks at the objects and studies their shape,
where the light falls and the shadows the objects make in relation to the other objects.
Many well-known artists have created still-life studies.
