ANZAC soldier silhouettes: Year 5-6 art lesson

This lesson requires careful cutting out for the silhouette soldiers for it to look effective. I printed out pictures of ANZAC soldiers from the internet that would be suitable as silhouettes (on A3 paper). Students cut out the ‘positive’ shapes of the soldiers to be left with the ‘negative’ background to use like a stencil for the silhouette.

Learning Intention:

To make a commemorative ANZAC day picture with silhouettes of ANZAC soldiers.

SUCCESS CRITERIA:

I can carefully cut out shapes of ANZAC soldiers from a printed out /photocopy picture of ANZAC soldiers.

I can use the negative shape as a stencil to paint in the shapes of the soldiers.

I can use chalk pastels to fill in the background around my soldier shapes, blending and smudging colours.
