I have heard, “I can’t draw hands,” so many times that I decided it would make a wonderful beginning assignment. I tried to make it fun by having the kids use only 5 colored pencils. The sets all had a good value range so that they could draw the highlights and shadows but the colors were all mixed up, purple, pink, green, etc. I wanted the drawings and the drawers to be relaxed and have fun. I think the did a great job with a difficult observational drawing!
