Product Description

Students can be introduced to this art lesson with the book, Nadia’s Hands by Karen English. Students will be familiarized with the traditional practice of Henna. They will trace their hands on the paper, to be decorated with different types of lines, shapes, and forms. They will create a border as well using symmetrical and asymmetrical line drawn images. Next, the students will choose either a warm colour scheme or a cool colour scheme to exhibit how they are feeling that day. These colours will be used to surround the hands as the background. This lesson should take about two 50 minute blocks, and possibly a short block for finishing any last minute details of the activity (sketching, painting).

Fundamental Concepts:

Line: Variety of line (e.g., thick, thin, dotted)

Shape and Form: Composite shapes; symmetrical and asymmetrical shapes and forms.

Colour: Colour for expression (e.g., warm and cool colours); colour to indicate emotions

Variety: Strong contrasts (e.g., use of different lines, shapes, values, and colours to create interest).
