Portraits: Silhouettes


     Remember that we already know what a silohuette is: it is the image of a person, an object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single colour, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject (Wikipedia). 

So let's put it into practice!!!

  1. We will tape a paper to the wall and had them sit in a chair showing our profile.
  2. A light will throw a shadow on the paper (wait or coloured) that we will trace with a pencil
  3. We will cut along the line to get our silhouette.
  4. If we want the silhouette to be black, we will have to trace it again on a black paper. Or, you could also want it painted on a canvas, then you could paint the head or the background.

Sea Saw

I've found this interesting game on the National Gallery of Art website. You may try it at home!!!!

 

   To create art with SEA-SAWS, select photographs of natural and man-made objects, then arrange the pieces to create a seascape or an abstract composition. The BUILD tool helps you construct animated characters and set them in motion. ADD them to your scene as still objects, movers, rockers, or rollers. Hit the green PLAY button to set the scene in motion. (Shockwave 7.5 MB)
