Creating Bible Stories In A Silhouette
During the first two weeks of Art I, Savio students were introduced to Beatrice Coron - a French artist who specializes in paper cut stories. After watching her TED Talk and learning more about her work, the students were asked to choose a favorite bible story and illustrate it in a single silhouette image.
Students learned about drawing, how to create a work of art in a positive and negative space, and how to properly use X-acto knives. The final works of art resulted in pieces where the negative space was removed and everything else in the image remained connected to the original edge of the paper. The works of art are facinating to observe!
