Beginner Acrylic Painting – Copper Mug Still Life – High School Art Project


Product Description

This high school art acrylic painting lesson can be taught in the classroom or via distance learning if students have the paints and materials needed at home. The video demonstrations and step-by-step slide show can be shared easily with students using Google Classroom or any digital platform. The reference photo has links to the slideshow and students can access it easily on any device. This lesson is meant to follow my introduction to color theory lesson or students should have practiced using a split complementary color palette previously.

I also have this lesson available with the worksheets in an Introduction to Painting Bundle.


Included in this Acrylic Painting Copper Mug Art Lesson are:

  • A presentation with video demonstrations showing how to set up the painting and mix colors to create dark and light values in Google Slides and PowerPoint formats
  • The reference image to draw from with links to the video demonstrations
  • A PDF with video links and a QR code to scan so students can view the presentation even if you do not upload the lesson to Google Classroom
  • Rubric for easy grading
  • Teacher instructions

Need an Easy to Follow Art Sub Plan?

The included worksheets work great as sub plans, and early finisher assignments, for students on home instruction or in ISS. They are easy to follow are easy for substitute teachers or self-directed learning when the art teacher is unavailable.

They are designed to save you time and help your students access the tutorials, presentations, videos, or worksheets as easily as possible.
