The first project for the year with Kinder and 1st graders was a lesson on emphasis. Using color and line or shapes we put emphasis on the hand by creating one design with the background and different design on the hand. This first example is really great. She really squeezed her lines together, what a patient five year old! This took us three days to finish ( I was also cramming in art room procedures), so it would probably be 2 art days to complete. The hardest part was to get kindergarteners to commit to one thing! They would "get bored" after a few lines and start something new.
