Task 4 - Art

Plants have been used by many artists as inspiration for their work. Why do you think that is?  Today we will look at some famous works of art by Monet, Klimt and Van Gogh who have all been inspired by nature.


As you are doing art today, listen to some calming music to help you as you paint.

1.  Read through the Plants in Art lesson.
2.  Read through Paint a Still Life below.  Today, you are going to make your own still life using plants!  Look at Cézanne's example:

You will need:

  • Flowers and/or fruits and vegetables
  • Paint and paintbrushes - if you don't have these use colouring pencils or just a pencil
  • A pencil
  • Paper or canvas 



  • Put your flowers and/or fruits and vegetables on a table in an interesting arrangement. It will help to put some objects higher than others, so you could use a box or some books to support them. 
  • Use a pencil to lightly sketch the objects onto your paper or canvas. Don’t press too hard or the pencil marks might show through the paint. Remember that objects that are closer to you should be drawn lower down on your drawing. They need to overlap objects that are further away. 
  • One you have finished your sketch, use paint to complete your artwork. It is easier if you paint your background first, and then colour your flowers and/or fruits and vegetables once that is dry.
