This week I started my year long placement at Our Lady & St Patrick’s High. As a dive into the deep end I have tested my S3 & S4 at observing their own hands. The photos displayed are from the first sitting of S4. This exercise tests pupils’ observation and proportion skills, as well as patience and their control. It’s a very tough challenge (I think that hands are probably the toughest thing to draw on the human body, if not entirely), though I often think that after it, every other task seems easy to the pupils.
