3rd Grade Halloween Silhouette Pictures

The 3rd graders had a fun time this week creating these very cute halloween silhouette "haunted" pictures. We used markers and then created basic shapes to make a haunted tree, dancing skeletons, spooky cats, spiders, bats, pumpkins and owls. We painted swirly clouds in the sky and finally we added white eyes to make our spooky creatures "jump" off the page! This has been a very fun project!

Parents: This would be a great project to do at home! We used black Crayola washable markers. Eyes were added with simple "paper punch" circles! Encourage your children to focus on the SHAPES of the creepy creatures.

I am so impressed with all of these art projects. There are some great artists at East Elementary and a wonderful art teacher! Thanks for all you do.
