6 year olds.
A wee girl came in from next door to be our model. She made a few poses for the children to draw using black crayon.
They made another drawing of their favorite observational drawing, using pencil and charcoal. These were cut out and then traced around onto black paper which was also cut out. The black shadow was glued onto the page first, then the drawing was glued slightly lower and to one side of the shadow. There were a few hiccups...shadows glued on the wrong side, therefore mirror images; drawings put too far to one side so they didn't look connected.
The addition of the coloured squares as a boarder helped the images 'pop'. I think it us the contrast with the black and white.
The idea for this came from pinterest,many thanks.http://anartroomfilledwithfauves.blogspot.co.nz/search/label/2nd%20Grade
