Silhouette Sunset

I have done this project in the past but I have decided to change it up a little bit this year. This lesson is a great way to introduce concepts such as negative space and primary and secondary colors. These are some pictures of the students painting the background or negative space with primary color to make secondary colors.

Each child had their silhouette drawn on a black piece of paper. they cut out their silhouette leaving them with their head and an organic shape that roughly resembled a tree. hidden in the trunk if the tree is also their silhouette. They painted the tree with different values of brown to make it look like the trunk and branches of a tree.
