A still-life is an arrangement of inanimate items (items that are not alive) A still-life is arranged for the purpose of creating art
Van Goghs Shoes Vincent Van Gogh created this still-life of his shoes. What makes the shoes interesting as a piece of art? What might we need to think about if we created our own still-life?
