Museum lessons and crafts for kids: Dutch Still Life Painting

While some public spaces are reopening, many of us are still looking for ways to entertain and teach our kids at home. The Education Outreach Interns at the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UCSB, have designed five lessons and crafts that you can share with your aspiring artists and historians at home!

In this lesson, Savannah Barnhart introduces the concept of still life paintings popularized in the Dutch region of Europe during the 17th century. After discussing what Dutch still-life painters liked to depict in their works and the methods they used to make them, you will learn how to make your own Dutch-inspired still lifes at home.
