If you can, get outside to complete this. If you can’t get outside, wait until the sun comes through a window!
Find an object in your home that would create an interesting shadow. Place a piece of paper behind it and draw around the shadow. Then choose from the following activities;
- Move the object left or right, forwards or backwards. Draw around the shadow again. What do you notice?
- Using the shadow create a piece of artwork. It could be as realistic or as abstract as you like!
- When you have drawn around it once, leave everything where it is. Come back a while later. Has the shadow moved or changed? Draw around it again. Repeat throughout the day.
- Once you have drawn your shadow, complete the piece of work by adding a background to complete the scene. You could even write a short poem or story about what you have created.
