This project will be my introductory lesson to observational drawings from now on! They loved looking at their hands and making fun poses with them. They got really creative too- on child made a star out of the "peace sign" much like this child made the heart out of her hands.
|Heart Hands- Fifth Grade Student|
|The first step- observation!|
When we finished observing our details it was time for color-here we got creative! Any color for the hand was fine, as long as we added in shading. I showed them how to make their hands pop with shadows and outlining the wrinkles with a marker of the same color. The only stipulation they had was with their background colors. One choice had to be its compliment- the other had to be the same color scheme as as the hand; a warm color if it was a warm colored hand, and cool if it was a cool color hand. We then made a fun design in the background using those color choices.
|Still in progress- but looking fabulous!|
