Be sure to give your child plenty of time to study each work of art. Ask: How are Cezanne's paintings different from other artists we've studied? How are they similar? What colors did Cezanne like to use? How did he use light and shape in his art? How do his paintings make you feel? Cezanne is well known for his paintings of objects, which are called "still life" art. Why do you think artists want to paint everyday objects? Read more about still life art here.
