Summer Learning Journey | Art for Arts Sake

For this Summer Learning Journey Activity, I have drew my younger self as a Silhouette. A Silhouette is a type of art which is a profile of a black and white background to represent someone. This art was created by Etienne De Silhouette, and as you can tell from the name, the art was named after him, Silhouette.

You can try out this activity by taking a side profile picture of yourself or one of your family members, then tracing the outline of the image and colouring it in black, then cutting the image, and then pasting on it on a white paper /OR if you want to try it on a Google Draw, repeat the same process.

I enjoyed doing this activity because art is usually about having the same details as the reference, good blendings, or choosing the right colours but this activity doesn’t need any detail, and is hard to identify who the person is, which can challenge others to find out more about who the person is.

  1. Kia ora Chisa,

    You’ve written a clear reflection of the task and it’s great that you have shared that the reference is a younger version of you. You have added some great detail into your silhouette, that makes it stand out! I like how visible the eyelashes and fringe are! It was very well done, so you should be very proud of yourself! Tino pai! 👏

    Thanks for sharing the process of creating a silhouette. I am going to have to try this activity this afternoon on my own. Do you have any more tips on how to create a great silhouette?

    Ngā mihi,
    Simon (SLJ)
