Virtual Refrigerator: Silhouettes

Welcome to another edition of the Virtual Refrigerator! This weekly blog hop was started by Jennifer at A Glimpse of Our Life, and is now also co-hosted by Angels of HeartHomeschool Coffee Break, and Every Bed of Roses. We all cordially invite you to add your link sharing the art that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges!
Kennady's art lessons have been focusing on silhouettes and outlines in various forms. In one assignment she had to find an object and draw only its outline from three different angles, and see which angle was best for identifying the object using only an outline. She chose a rubber duckie.

In the next lesson, she needed to draw an animal in profile, so that it could be identified by its outline. She made a couple sketches, trying to find an animal shape she liked, including this pampas deer...

and finally settled on a fennec (fox). She then had to cut out her drawing and use it sort of like a stencil to create this.

And then she also had to do a couple of traditional silhouette drawings of a person. Reluctantly, I was her model. I figured that at least a silhouette wouldn't reveal that I wasn't wearing any makeup and wasn't looking my best. LOL Well, you can still tell that my hair was rather sloppily pulled back into a clip at the time. Silhouettes are pretty forgiving, overall, so I can't complain.

Add a link to share your child's art or your arts and crafts how-to posts, and visit the other blogs and admire what's on their Virtual Refrigerators!
