Pen and Ink Silhouette Drawings-teen class

We looked at some examples of scherenschnitte, which is german for cut paper art. We did not cut paper but took pen and ink on illustration board to create the feeling of this art. I hope to do the project again when we have the time to actually plan and cut the paper. Till then, enjoy the wonderful whimsy of these designs.

Oil Pastel Animals, ages 8-12
