The first step was to create a radiating sunset with paint. The following class we practiced drawing horses, we talked about the shapes we could use to draw a horse, and we looked at pictures of horses. Then we learned what a silhouette is: the image of a person, animal, object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single color, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject.
These 1st graders did fantastic!, it wasn't easy to draw and cut out a horse.
Did you know our school Wawaloam Elementary was named after the Narragansett Tribe Princess Wawaloam who lived over 350 years ago in our area.
