About Me

I have been teaching elementary school art for the past seven years and I LOVE what I do! I am a teacher who creates more messes than I can clean, thinks that glitter makes everything look better, and believes that art can bring people of all cultures together.

Picasso's Hands with Flowers

This is a great one-day lesson for the young artists.  For the older artists, they can handle drawing the hands, but the little ones like making hand prints :)  I really like how striking these look in contrast with the white paper.  The students used oil pastels to draw their bouquets and signed their names like Picasso did, right on the front of their artwork.

  1. What a surprise to see the handprints as hands holding the flowers--so unexpected and what a lovely keepsake. I am doing this with some Kinders in a couple weeks and have been tossing around a few ideas for collage, watercolor, stamping, etc. trying to keep it fun and simple--now I'm thinking this might be the one to try! Thank you so much for sharing this great project! Mrs. P @ createartwithme.blogspot.com

  3. Border designs can enhance this work of art. I will try this craft while having some good time with my grandchildren.
