My new school was very into celebrating Halloween this year so third graders created these Halloween silhouettes. This is a lesson I have seen on several different blogs. We looked at images of silhouettes and discussed how they are created- objects that are lit up from behind. Next we brainstormed different Halloween images and I did a demonstration. We used a black crayon and 6x18 piece of orange paper. Students began by drawing a horizon line towards the bottom of the paper and then added silhouetted details making sure to color everything in black. I stressed the idea of just showing the shape or contour of the objects.
