Henna Introductory Hands

The 7th grade students looked at Henna tattoos and designs. As a very introductory project, to get to know the students and also for them to get to know the materials, I had them trace their hands, outline them in oil pastel and/or crayon, and also to watercolor the background. In the hand, they had to write in different fonts, supposedly, with thin and thick lines, ideas and words that describe or represent them, their personalities, things that they like to do, places that they want to go, etc. These have been very interesting to read and they look so layered and lovely.
