This is a project that I do with younger kids, on 8 1/2″ x 11″ or 11″ x 17″ that I blew up on the bulletin board. It took several months. I’d ask kids and staff if I could trace their hands. It turned out really well. Plus, I’ve found that kids follow along with the progress, even if at first they seem uninterested. Original inspiration came from a site on the web for younger kids. But it’s a common theme. I will work with it again, for a more refined piece for the facility where I like. The original instructions, were to have hands overlap, with some part each hand on top, some part of each hand underneath or supporting another. This was a key element I would stress when working with kids in treatment, they we support each other and everyone has a time to shine. After all, Many hands make light work.
