Mr. Toner’s 5th Class made some very interesting self portrait silhouettes. The aim of this visual art lesson was to explore the meaning and examples of silhouettes, explore colour and the meaning behind various colours to help children choose the colour that best fits their personality for their silhouette paper while also  using their interests to engage in exploratory/imaginative drawing to create self-portrait silhouettes.

The children really enjoyed this art lesson and it was an ideal starter lesson for their teacher, Mr. Toner to get to know his students at the beginning of this new school year. The class also used this work as an opportunity to link to weekly themes such as caitheamh aimsire / interests / hobbies, while also providing opportunities to link to the SPHE strand unit – Myself!
