'silhouettes in profile' workshop at Cossington
This evening I ran a 'silhouettes in profile' workshop, showing a group of children aged between 7 and 11 that they can achieve amazing results with scrap paper and a pair of scissors. We began by drawing around each other's heads on black sugar paper with chalk which looked great when we 'smudged it outwards' (see pics). They then chose magazine images that represented what was in their heads! This was loads of fun, incredibly effective and practically cost free!
