Sailboat Silhouette

Standard

I have been doing these for years-they were a variation on a lesson in the Art Attack program that my daughter’s school adopted many years ago. I usually do this with First Grade but you can do it with just about any age group and can change the silhouette subject.

Silhouettes and watercolor are fun and they look pretty.

Students first draw their sailboats with a permanent marker. A great way to reinforce shapes. (triangles, trapezoids, half circles).

Then they paint shadows under the boats.

Then they paint the sky in warm colors.

Then they paint the sea in cool colors.

Easy-quick-frameable.

For second grade, one year, the students did dinosaurs-warm ground, cool skies. Same lesson-different subject.
