Colonial Arts Unit
Imaginative Silhouette Pictures



Students first completed silhouette self-portraits.

Next, they looked around the room to find objects that had interesting shapes, such as pliers, tape dispensers, paint pump dispensers, bolts, blenders, etc., etc.!

They made contour drawings of these objects on white paper, cut them out, traced around the shapes onto black paper, and repeated and overlapped to make imaginative shadow picture designs.
