Aren’t their feet cute? I am so pleased with how these turned out with the addition of the feet using painted fingers and just a bit of the hand. I tried having the papers turned upside down or sideways so the fingers would be pointed the direction that made sense. A few students decided they wanted their hands to be pointed a particular way and I went with what they wanted since it is their artwork.
One student had great fun doing a count down to placing her hands on the paper,”…..5, 4, 3, 2, 1″ and splat, onto the paper.
Now if I could just figure out awesome art projects like these for every theme. That is one of my goals, to keep adding more open ended projects that really make my students think and create because they always turn out in surprising and awesome ways.
