Picasso Hands and Flowers.

I absolutely love Picasso's simple gesture drawings that he produced later in life, and I thought that second grade was an excellent age to focus on his "Hands Holding Flowers".

We talked about how a hand would look when holding something like flower stems, and drew a simple contour drawing of a hand in pencil, and then traced in sharpie.  Flower stems and blossoms were painted without any pencil planning.  Simple, and beautiful!

I saw a lot of projects that were nearly identical to this one so I apologize if it seems like I'm a non-credit-giving project theif, but I just can't remember from where I was originally inspired!
