Sunset Silhouettes

These are great for fall. I found this on Deep Space Sparkle. I shopw 4th or 5th grade this video on positive and negative space: Positive and Negative Space.

  1. We talk about what creates a silhouette.

  2. Students wash a 9x12 inch piece of drawing paper.

  3. Then they trace a ruler on all 4 side of the black paper to create a frame.

  4. After that, they draw a landscape with pumpkins, bare trees, fences, grass, houses, etc.

  5. Next they cut out the negative space (or background).

  6. Finally they glue the black on top of the sunset colors.
