|My Tree of Life as inspired by artist Jane LaFazio, using stencils.|
One of my favorite motifs to use with students is tracing
their hands as an element in an artwork.
To me, hands are representative of the self, so students
are able to put a bit of themselves into their artwork.
Here are just a few ideas using hands as a motif.
|This may be what started it all...my friend Suzie created a series of |
inspiring hand paintings in college... raise your hand, please!
|An idea from my friend Ruth, finish by zentangling all, |
or just the space around the hand...optional, add color.
|An idea from a student...trace hand over drawings of personal symbols, |
color with markers...I might just have to use this idea! Thanks M!
