Silhouette Season Art

Have you visited Hope.  She has a great blog and is from my neck of the Nation.  Anyway, go check her out.  I found a fun art project she did and then adapted it to our work with seasons and weather.  Here is her art blog post...Tint/Shade/Silhouette Art

First we thought about what our favorite season was and a color that we thought would represent that season.  Next we used a blob of colored tempera paint and a blob of white tempera paint.  (I love these trays...thank you IKEA.)
We started with a white circle.  Then added a paintbrush full amount of our color and mixed it with all the white on our tray.  Then painted around the white circle. 

Repeat this process until all the page is painted.  Then let dry.
Next we ripped black paper, for the ground, and glued it on the bottome.
Then we had to think of an image that was part of the season we chose.  We drew our idea with pencil and cut it out.
 And then glued our image on the paper.

Next week, we are going to add some poetry.
Happy Finally Friday!

  3. So cute! I've been thinking of a way we could use this in reading or SS. I might do it for Thanksgiving with Native Americans and Pilgrims.
