Still Life Drawing

Barber Home – family

Our homes have given us so much in the past few months, and we’re sure you’ve spent a lot of time looking at the objects that live in your space!

How would you make an artwork about them? Create your own still life with artist Benny Semp using our downloadable art activity pack for families.

Inspired by Renaissance paintings in our collection, learn about still life paintings and the hidden significance of the objects found within them. The painting you can see on the right is A Still Life with Nautilus Cup, painted in 1632, by Jan Davidsz de Heem – what objects can you see in it?

Aimed at children between 7 and 12, the pack links to the key stage 2 art and design curriculums – perfect for keeping the kids occupied during the holidays.


Try your hand at making your own still life drawing masterpiece with our downloadable resource.
