Silhouetted Bats

Kindergarten’s next project of the week was inspired by Shady Oak’s animal of the season, the bat. I found this art project on the Artsonia website;

Students were given two bat shaped templates which they placed on a piece of black construction paper.  Two small pieces of blu tack were used to keep the templates in place. Each student was then given a sponge and three colors of tempera paint, violet, orange and yellow. Students sponged all three colors on to the black paper, sponging the orange and yellow closest to the bats so their silhouettes would stand out. The templates were then taken off the paper and bats flying in the moonlight were revealed 🙂

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity.
