My students have been studying the art of Randi Feuerhelm Watts. They have been creating mini paintings that I call "Synectic Stencil Silhouette" designs, that were inspired by studying Randi's work. Each student created a positive and negative silhouette stencil and used both in various ways. The students were required to use 3 "synectic triggers", such as reversing, overlapping, combining, superimposing, fragmenting, and outlining when creating their design. I think the results are outstanding!
