Here's a fun and easy art project just in time for Halloween! Make a spooky Halloween silhouette scene using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. Create a gradient using Halloween themed colors as a background. Then, draw Halloween themed shapes/elements in black to create a silhouette effect. For beginners, consider using the polygonal lasso tool for cut-out effects, or use a black brush. For more advanced users, use the pen tool. You can also add ghostly white effects, or reduce the opacity to create more depth. For more advanced kids, consider adding simple animation. If you have Photoshop CS6 (or video software) you can also add audio easily to make mini-videos. Have students use only original artwork, but you can get free spooky sound effects from sites like "Soungle." You can have them Google search Halloween silhouettes for more inspiration, or just see my samples here.
Also consider adding children's voice overs of spooky Halloween stories!
