Classroom Challenge – Shadows

If we are lucky enough to have any sunny days this summer – this is a fun activity that doesn’t need any resources other than a plain (preferably light coloured wall)


You can see from the image above that by using careful angles you can add another dimension to your images. These can then be made more dramatic afterward by editing using apps!

You can add another dimension by adding a simple prop – we used the sweeping brush as inspired by one of Banksy’s pieces of wall art – can you find which one?


By adding face paint or a mask we introduced another element.



Look for clean lines and plain clothes as the impact comes from the contrast between the figure and the shadows. Can you write the story behind the image?
