    Doing art projects like this in school (5th grade, to be specific), really helped me discover my passion for art and photography. Ironically enough, my fifth grade teacher is the one who I am pinning this from. You never know how the little things can make such a big impression. Color your hand! Trace the hand in pencil. With a marker, draw a straight line until you get to the hand. Then make a curve from one line to the next, then continue the straight line.

I love this pattern. Drawing straight onto fabric with fabric markers.... from Mer Mag

This could be a neat project to do with almost any age. It's super simple to do; after tracing your hand, make a curved line connecting the two sides of your trace, make the outer lines straight. Could be a neat project to start about talk about 3-D Art! Very Cool! :) Jade Lins

Doing this now but with a twist... handprints on the first day of school beginning now (preschool) until they graduate. How cool to ring them together and see how they grow!! Will do the "kissing hands" though, great idea for the kids to carry with them...as long as they're not "too cool"!

A fun way to teach kids about shadows - especially with Groundhog Day coming up soon!

Using a ruler (duh!) for the straight lines, skipping over the hand. When the straight lines are done, go back and add the curved line.
