Sailboat silhouette art project

Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Class completed this sailboat silhouette art project. The children were encouraged to explore colour to help them recreate some of their favourite sunset scenes!! 🌅 ��
The children were also encouraged to pay attention to how sunset’s colours change, and to play with the paint as they blend the colours together!! 🖌️ 
They learned how to use simple paint strokes to create a sense of perspective within their art and were encouraged to think about the concept of foreground/background and light/shadow – and how these effects are applied to make the sailboats stand out from the colourful backdrop!! 🎨 Great work from our senior classes!! 👏🏼
