Personality Hands by Fifth Grade

The fifth grade has been working on this project for the past few weeks. The goal is to have a grouping of hand designs that represents their likes, interests, and personalities. We discussed their favorite sports, hobbies, colors, foods, nationalities, and more. Then they had to find ways to incorporate them into their hand designs.
First they traced their hands and sketched designs in the interior spaces. Next they traced over all the lines with black crayon to create borders for their paint. After that they used watercolors to paint the details inside the hands. Finally, they chose one or more colors to paint the background of their artwork.

Here are a few samples from students who have finished...
