Transcript of Silhouette

Telling a story Silhouette So what does this mean for you? Kara Walker What is a Silhouette? A silhouette is an image of a person, an object, or scene represented as a solid color, often black, its edges matching the outline of the subject. The interior is solid and basically featureless, and it is often on a white background. This is a different and difficult way to illustrate and you have to have a different mindset for this project. You aren’t going to be using Line Weight or Value, and instead you are focusing on Shape and Positive and Negative Space. For this project you are going to be creating a silhouetted scene based off of one of your own dreams. Your artwork must include people, objects and/or surroundings that work together to tell a story. Each element of your piece must serve a purpose in telling your story, while balancing out your scene and being an interesting, aesthetically pleasing artwork. Silhouettes have been used in pop culture. Steps of the Project:
1.Think of a dream you have never forgotten.
2.Think how you would illustrate one scene of that dream that gets across the feeling and story of your dream.
3.Start sketching out ideas. Remember, these are going to be over dramatic, you won’t be able to show facial expression or words to show the details so emphasized silhouettes are important.
4.Once you have a good sketch color in your sketch with a dark pencils to see how it would look a solid color, and how the positive and negative space effect the composition.
5.Then you will draw out your scene on black construction paper, and CAREFULLY cut out you scene using scissors and an x-acto knife.
6.Arrange your scene on white paper and glue them into place. Karl Johnson Tim Arnold
