Still Life with Falling Books

Mixed Media, March 2008
Original. 54 x 80″ 

Part of my training to be an art teacher meant I had to shadow existing art teachers and teach a six-week class at nearby middle and high schools before graduating. When creating a still life art project for my students, my middle-school teaching mentor encouraged me to start making my own “teacher examples” for future classes. To model the potential for every tool students could use, I blended several books, magazines, scraps of cardstock, markers, and modeling materials from around the classroom to make this.  

In this image, I wanted to visualize the frenetic and organic movement of the classroom with this classroom still-life example. In order to create this movement, I drew each object as it was being placed and changed between classes. On several occasions, many of the objects would fall on each other making it an ever-changing still life representation.
