Craft Spotlight: Animal Silhouettes

Feature-Image-AnimalSilhouettesMake your own garden safari with our Animal Silhouettes! Animal Silhouettes feature stylish animal designs, and special glossy and matte sides to allow students to experiment with their coloring using different materials. Check out more of our Art Camp photos below!

Students can learn how to draw various graphical patterns and designs on the intriguing black card and use multiple media such as gel pens, chalk, glitter glue, pastels and more!

DSCF7201Each Animal Silhouette comes with a backing that you can pop off. Separate the interior shape from the outer shape.

DSCF7202Animal Silhouettes come in a range of designs–24 animals in a neat little pack! Choose between a monkey (pictured above), camel, kangaroo, lion, moose, penguin, horse, ostrich, bear, pig, alligator, hippo, rhinoceros, elephant, kudu, tiger, bull, wolf, snake, duck, rabbit, turtle, squirrel and hedgehog. With so many to choose from, your students will never get bored of their art work!

DSCF7206We set out pastels and chalk for the Art Campers to use. This young artist decided to experiment with different colors of chalk in vertical lines. She followed the vertical design of the kangaroo’s body to make her patterns.

IMG_2263Another camper decided to use the glitter glue in multiple colors. He mixed blue and green to color in the turtle’s shell and used red to define the turtle’s feet and tail. The random pattern of lines generated by the glitter glue helped to give the turtle an abstract, “drip-like” appearance.

IMG_2269Here’s a brief view of some of our art projects combined: The Floppy Foam Brushes were used to make the glitter hearts (stay tuned for an upcoming post on this project this Friday!), while our Animal Silhouettes were placed alongside in a sunny spot to dry.
