For this unit students learned about Contour line and how to draw their own hand in the contour style. Students had to follow the lines of their hands in a chosen position making sure to create the form of their hand with one simple line. Inspired by the artist Sedef Yilmabasar, a woman born in Istanbul who finds art in textures, color, symbols and all her cats students created their own Yilmabasar patterns in the backgrounds and applied vibrant solid color to fill them in. On their hands they found the small spaces to work with while keeping the majority of the space of the hand white paper.
