Still Life Project

For this project we will build a collection of objects that will convey your idea in a broader context than is possible with one object.

The still life you create must pay homage to the relics or tools of a trade.

Your still life will be a collection of at least 5 objects representing Trade. What is a trade? Who is a tradesperson? Some examples include a shoemaker, metalsmith, basket weaver, electrician, plumber, iron worker, brick maker, gardner.

You might think:
– Are there any trades common in my family?
– Is there a trade you wish you have mastered already (like NASA’s Chief Sniffer)
– What are the “tools of the trade”
-What is a trade that is being lost? Are there relics of that trade?

Your still life must be composed of at least 5 objects and visually describe and/or respond to a trade.
