Drawing Silhouettes

jan 29 001 
Today’s art was an attempt to draw the children’s silhouettes. 
But the children weren’t interested in just sitting. 

So a quick change up and the children were drawing
animal silhouettes on paper on the wall.

It took a few tries for them to figure how to position their
bodies to draw while seeing the image.  I was impressed that
they didn’t give up.

It took a few tries to follow the edge of the silhouette rather than the
shape as a whole.  They could recognize their animal when done.

Finally, one child showed interest to have his own silhouette drawn.

I like how his aunt finished off his details, right down to the picture
on his t-shirt.

Interest wasn’t always art based.
