As far back as ancient Egyptian times, skilled artists have enjoyed reproducing images of food with paint on canvas.
Within this tradition, the “fruit basket” has its own enduring appeal – perhaps because fruit is a particularly patient subject that is willing to sit still for hours and allow itself to be painted.
Yet, however classic and time-honored this tradition may be, beginning art students are often less than enthused about spending a whole class period painting fruit, and may (understandably) feel tempted to skip that day’s lesson.
Here, it can help to add in a model to liven up the lesson – preferably a being with strong visual appeal, lots of personality, and the ability to hold students’ interest for hours on end.
