Circle map

Students can brainstorm the purposes of a still life

Students will put “still life” in the center, then brainstorm how many purposes they can think of... then we look at the maps, then study a powerpoint of still lives, then add to the map.

Double Bubble

Students will compare and contrast a “still life” with a “portrait” to discuss the subtle differences between art genres.

Students will first brainstorm what they know about the two genres and then see a few examples of each and add to it… THEN the students can create one of each genre and come back and add to the map from personal experience… yay!
