South Bay Hands on Art
Inspired by "Flashlight" by Lizi Boyd
Lesson by Lee-Jean Lin
Black paper, white pencil or sharp crayon, white paper, scissors, glue stick, colored pencils or crayons (black pencil suggested, but a regular pencil will work if you don't have one) optional: handout
Explore the magic of night, nature and art. Artist Lizi Boyd has crafted a masterful exploration of night, nature, and art. There is magic in the darkness. We just have to look for it.
It's totally dark out there and you can hardly see anything. However, a flashlight reveals a magical world so different from what we see during the day. This project was inspired by the picture book, "Flashlight" by Lizi Boyd. In it a child goes out at night with a flashlight and explores nature in the dark. The video lesson shares pages from this book and why we don't see colors in the dark. Students can then follow along to create the scene of a boy walking thru the woods, but can vary it as they wish with their imaginations! What will they find in their flashlight?
