Don't Be Scared...Hands and stick figures


Don't be scared!

If you can draw stick figures great! We've been learning on how to use stick figures to create complex forms. One of the hardest forms for young artists to draw is the hand, and feet can be tough too. 

No one likes being called out for being afraid but a lot of young artists hide the hands because they are scared to draw them. However, look at how wonderfully they convey the story!

We look to faces and hands to tell us if someone is dangerous or friendly. We look at hands to evaluate what people's intentions are.  We use hands to express emotion. 

Hands are a critical part of the story! Don't be a bad story teller. Here are some tutorials on how to draw hands.

Again don't be scared hands can be fun!
