As a class we introduced and exlored the idea of a silhouette. We looked at several examples of them and discussed the reason why we do not see details in a silhouette.
Next we brainstormed ideas that we could draw in our silhouettes. Since we were close to Halloween there were many ideas around that celebration. The children had freedom of choice of what subject to draw in their silhouettes.
Once it was drawn they colored in all the shadow parts in black and used watercolor to paint the sky.
