Programs for Children
Art Club – July
Welcome to Art Club online – where the Incinerator Gallery comes to you.
Our art educator Gina Panebianco invites you to learn about the meanings behind hand gestures in art from the comfort of your own home.
Use the hashtag #IncineratorGallery so everyone can share and support each other, just as we do during the program at Incinerator Gallery.
Make a 3D hand drawing
Watch the videos below for drawing tips to create a 3-dimensional illusion of your hand.
You will need:
- paper or card to draw on – this could be plain, or coloured, large enough for your hand and wrist
- HB or B pencil to lightly draw the initial outline
- coloured pencils, biros, or felt tipped pens
- ruler if you wish
Consider which position to place your hand on the paper — vertical, diagonal, central, or off centre. Experiment with different hand gestures to trace different combinations of fingers.
Consider what colours will look best, try different colour combinations or draw more than one hand on your sheet to challenge your optical drawing skills.
