Love it when cool ideas actually WORK.
A friend of mine -from childhood- pinned a nifty 3D hand project a few weeks ago.
I repinned and THANKED her for the awesome idea….gave it a shot at home and then decided to toss it at my classes.
It fit all the criteria;
- We were learning lines – this project used lines
- I am under pressure to stay “neat” this year – this project is not messy
- It had to be CHEAP – I had all the supplies in my art closet already
1. LIGHTLY trace your hand and arm on a piece of paper – it should be very light (some kids did, others didn’t)
2. Draw curved lines on the arm and hand – connected with STRAIGHT lines on the rest of the page (again, some did, others didn’t…at least not every time)
3. Color between the lines. Alternate colors- we used colored pencils – (the no-mess factor) – but will follow up with fine black marker lines to outline some of the lines and make the 3D image “PoP”
All in all it is a fun project – fairly easy to execute – well-contained – minimal supplies
