CORNER With Carol Peters 102 GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN KIDS HAND DESIGN USING WATERCOLOR — CRAYON RESIST It is so much fun to trace around your hand...and easy. Yet this image is one that dates back to the cave man. There are ceremonies related to hand painting dating back to 27,000 BC. Let’s take this traditional symbol and add a little about the artist in their own handwriting and you have a wonderful personal work of art that is a record of your “Stamp on Today.” Fascinating for centuries, the hand has many symbolic meanings from the signature of the artist, capturing healing energy through the hands and on and on.... Telling your story visually and in the written word is fun and easy. This project was done with six amazing young women ranging in age from 7 to 12 years old and they had a lot to say.
