Patriotic Silhouettes

Patriotic Silhouettes

Franklin has a long standing tradition of celebrating and honoring our veterans.  This project was done by our fifth graders and will decorate the walls of the school to honor our veterans.  The students had to create a silhouette, which is always a bit challenging since the kids have to think in terms of outlines only.  We talked about adding different values in the sky and making sure we had a balance of color to offset the harshness of the black.  The students used watercolor and acrylic paints for this project.
