Want an original type of family art?? Try a Whanau Tree :D
This is a painting I did from the handprints of all my family. I themed this one for Summer, I also did a foot one for Autumn, though I cant find the pic anywhere :( I had plans for a Spring and Winter, though I didnt get around to it. Would love to see versions :)

  • Step 1

    Just go around and trace around each members hands (left and right).

  • Step 2

    Cut all your templates out and arrange them on the canvas so it looks right. Then trace around all the hand templates.

  • Step 3

    Draw any kind of trunk you want, I just used a womans body.

  • Step 4

    Now you'll want to paint some leaves on all of the hand shapes, you can go over the edges, keep the templates so you can go over them later.
