Shadow drawing

Shadow drawing merely involves drawing the outline of a shadow.




  1. Wait for a sunny day!
  2.  Set up some paper on a table or on the ground.  It might be good to tape the corners to the table/ground to stop the piece of paper moving about as you draw.
  3. Set up an object on the sunny side of the paper.
  4. Get a pencil and draw around the outline of the shadow of the object.  Don’t take too long to draw the outline as the shadow will move over time.
  5. After drawing the outline of the shadow, you could infill the outline you have drawn with paint or felt pens.
