Great was the family sunday at the SMART musuem, Chicago. It is a day when everybody in a family attend art workshop, do some family project, listen to a concert etc. These silhouettes were done on one such sunday. With the kid standing against a bright light, the shadow is made to fall on a paper taped on the wall. The parent outlines the shadow , cut it out and all make a collage on the cutout . There was no big trouble in making my daughter stand still , but with my 7 mo old son , we had great difficulty to keep him straight. The light was so bright, he kept turning towards it. The day was filled with activities and gave us memories to be cherished forever.

WOW…they look soo good Lakshmi. Especially I loved the detailed cutting which shows the hair strokes, eye lashes and the well cut shirt collar. It sure would have been fun doing it.
My son made the same with black paper at school and it is on my fridge. They are all so wonderful, and creative!:)
