: Anna Barber
Grade: 10
Teacher: Doug Lack
School: Holliston High School
Project: Hand Holding 3 Objects

Our assignment in Mr. Lack’s Art II Honors class was to draw (in colored pencil) our hand along with three objects that represent us. I chose a ring, a concert ticket, and a camera strap to represent my family and the things that I love. Blending the colored pencils was a challenge; I had never worked with them before doing this project. Starting with a light blue outline, we built up the undertones and the top layer of the skin. As my hand slowly came to life, the project became one of my favorites. I loved the idea of the meaning behind the different objects, each one describing a different part of me.
