Last year I saw a teacher do a similar project to this for Dr. King's birthday. Unfortunately, it was too hard for my kids last year, so I filed it away until I could use it. I googled Dr. King, traced his image on my promethean board, ran a copy of the outline, and then cut the paper in half. I have tried to do "positive/negative" art before, but never could figure it out. This year the stars were aligned and here is our finished product. One of the better art projects I have done with kids. In fact, they are still up in my room, and it is almost April!
