3rd Grade Silhouettes

Artwork by Rowan P.
    Third graders spent some time the past couple sessions learning about how the negative space (often the area of an artwork surrounding the main subject) in an artwork can often be just as important as the positive space (ofen the subject itself).  After also learning how silhouettes must be recognizable from their shape alone, they created these collages of black construction paper silhouettes against a vivid watercolor sunset as examples of this principle of equal emphasis on both positive and negative space.  Some of them got extremely creative with their silhouette subjects!
