For this unit students learned the history of Silhouettes and color theory. Students let their imagination soar designing their own tree to fill the space of the paper cropping at edges. Deciding to use warm color values to depict a sun or cool colors to emulate a moon students took the choice of what was to be in the background of their work. Drawing a grid system using a ruler students had to make sure they were drawing 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch squares then filling them so no same color value shared a side. Their work is absolutely stunning.
