Art 1 started off the school year doing sign language hands. I start the art 1 kids with modified contour drawings . They practice their drawing skills in their sketchbooks and when I feel they are comfortable I get them started on this particular project.
They really enjoy this project and are always happy with the end results. I laminated the finished pieces, something I never do. I decided to do so this time because I have heard from former students that they still have their sign language hands up on their walls in their bedrooms. I figured they'd last longer if I laminated them.
I hope your school year is off to a great start!
