This is a painting project that I've done with grade 9s. We start by doing several contour drawings of pears from life. We then do some planning for the final project experimenting with color theory (Pear Planning Worksheet), which then takes us to the final painting, which we do in acrylic. You can adapt this project for different media, and different ages.
This version has the USA spelling of COLOR. If you would like the Canadian/British spelling, please see my store for the Canadian version of this file.
