Silhouette Art

We have moved on to the Colonial period of American History and we learned that silhouette portraits were common forms of art during this time. We gave it a try.
I'll keep you posted as to how they turn out. I did manage to get Emeline's profile as well - just wasn't quick enough to snap a picture of her before she jumped down. It was comical I would tell her to look at me as I knelt down in front of her and every time I took the crayon to the paper her head would turn to look. This happened oh, about 25 times... BUT we got it!!
