Lets have a hand

There is power in knowledge. I was recalling to my students how when I was in college art classes my professors most often were not. We learned by doing, by trial and error.
So I was insistent and happy to share a quick lesson on Monday morning (when they were all groaning they had homework or sleep to catch up on) on how to really see and draw a hand.

Since then they have been sketching their hands on the sides of their math papers, painting it on the covers of their sketchbooks and analyzing their life lines and fingers to discover who they are meant to be...

I love giving the kids tools and tips that must have been withheld from me when I was younger...

These kids are meant to be the visionaries of tomorrow.
