SILHOUETTES MAKE GREAT GIFTS, PLAN AHEAD!
The tradition of silhouette portraits was at its most popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. The name is derived from Etienne de Silhouette, a mid-18th century French Finance Minister, whose hobby was cut-out profiles. The collecting of this medium soon became widespread.
Although there has been a resurgence in silhouette art, genuine silhouette artists who “draw with scissors” are rare. Ted Stuessy's passion is creating silhouettes in the traditional freehand manner.
The average time it takes to cut is 10 minutes. We suggest for the younger children, to bring them in post-naptime and with a full belly along with a book or lap-sized activity to help keep them from the wiggles.
