Create > Paper Animal Silhouettes

Create > Paper Animal Silhouettes




Goal: Create a series of 5 images that use cut-out shapes to create silhouettes.


Studio Activity:
Be inspired by the work of Nikolai Tolstyh > https://instagram.com/n_tolstyh/ .  Look at how he uses cut paper to emphasize form and figure ground illusions.  Feel free to expand upon the idea and explore the effects with other shapes, different colored paper or multiple layers.  Experiment with cropping and filters. Make a connection with French painter Rene Magritte’s work > http://goo.gl/pXNgYV




Trigger Mechanisms: Figure-ground, texture, camouflage
